FIX: Access violation when you use PGO with Visual C++ 2013 Update 5

Symptoms
Pogo instrumented (PGI'd) executables may hit an access violation during process termination (for example: dll unload) or if count collection is paused.
Visual Studio 2015 U3 and later versions already include a fix for this issue.

Note This access violation occurs because of a buffer overrun.
