Summary: exception in at_exit --> 0 exit status

Initial Comment:
If an exception occurs in an at_exit block, the Ruby process still exits with a zero exit status. This seems wrong. Example code:

  $ ruby -e 'at_exit { raise "an error" }' ; echo $?
  -e:1: an error (RuntimeError)
          from -e:1
  0

All Ruby version I have tested work this way:

* 1.8.2
* 1.8.5
* 1.8.6
* subversion branch "ruby_1_8" from 2007-05-26
* subversion branch "ruby_1_8_6" from 2007-05-26
* subversion trunk from 2007-05-26

I tried all versions on Mac OS X, but I guess Ruby behaves this way on all platforms.
