Thanks, that helps with my understanding of the issue. Sadly, I don't
think your tweak will work in all cases, namely whenever (list
,@arg-forms) has side-effects. Luckily this doesn't happen in any
current tests, but I think those types of tests should be supported.

I believe the following is why my previous diff doesn't work. Consider:

(let ((test (make-ert-test :body (lambda () (ert-fail "failed")))))
  (ert-run-test test))

The above returns a struct/record and does not error.

(let ((test (make-ert-test :body (lambda () (ert-fail "failed")))))
  (condition-case err
      (ert-run-test test)
    (error "woops")))

Even though ert-run-test by itself does not error, the error handler is
ran. I believe this is because `ert--run-test-internal' binds `debugger'
around the evaluation of the test to somehow suppress this error.

Using condition-case-unless-debug gets around this, but now anytime
debug-on-error is non-nil the condition-case won't catch the error. I'm
not sure how to solve this.
