If an unexpected process shutdown occurs, the ExitProcess function is called to end the process. The unexpected process shutdown may occur as a result of an unrecoverable access violation. When this problem occurs, the garbage-collector thread may end while garbage collection is in progress. Later, if a function is called that must wait for garbage collection to be completed, a deadlock occurs. For example, the SystemDomain::ReleaseFusionInterfaces function may be called and must wait for garbage collection to be completed. This causes the process to stop responding (hang).
