Comment:

 The cause of the crash is that the runtime loader looks just like a
 regular executable -- and thus it can be loaded without problems -- but
 its entry function expects different parameters than a regular executable.
 The only solution I can think of is to add an explicit check whether the
 executable is the runtime loader. Given that there's no harm done by
 running and crashing the runtime loader, I don't think this is worthwhile.
