Yeah I also found this comment but I cannot make my memory allocator 
fail in a way that I get this exit code.

When an MSVC program crashes, a first class exception is thrown. Every 
exception has a numerical code. This numerical code is used as exit 
code. And those codes have proper defines like EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION.
