I just posted a patch which changes ERT to use `signal-hook-function' to
record backtraces instead.  It fixes the case in the OP.

https://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=30745#20

Note that condition-case also needs an enhancement to be able to catch
any signal (Bug#24618), so that might be a third reason why ERT didn't
go this route originally.
