Summary: Tests timed out when VM crashes and dumping core file which in
the test case is not needed. To make core not created, the fix changed
CreateMinidumpOnCrash to CreateCoredumpOnCrash, the former is only used
on Windows and the latter for all platforms. When VM crashes on non
Windows, core file generated as default if OS sets core dump allowed.
Default value of CreateCoredumpOnCrash set to 'true' to keep same
behavior on non Windows platforms, but changed for Windows --- original
is false, not create minidump on Windows. With CreateCoredumpOnCrash
turned off, no core file will be generated. CreateMinidumpOnCrash still
can be used on commandline but only as alias for the new flag.
Tests: JPRT, manual tests setting CreateMinidumpOnCrash on commandline
to verify flag change as alias.
