      Description

      As mentioned in this thread https://groups.google.com/d/msg/scala-language/eC9dqTTBYHg/Fu-lTp2fTlAJ, the JVM can end up in an inconsistent state after an SOE has occurred.

      This should not be considered “non-fatal”. People who know what they do can still use their own SpecialNonFatal type or override the uncaught exception handler to their liking.
