No. Exception could be raised, but FPCUnit will catch.
Without debug-info these exception not show a message. But I need to
see the Heaptrc info at the end.

I always create two Build modes: Debug and Run. To normal app, Debug
mode has all options to debug and Run mode has nothing (nor debug-info
or heaptrc). The "problem" is only for run Test programs, ie, in Run
mode I need check heaptrc.
