[core] PMD stops processing file completely, if one rule in a rule chain fails #1300

Affects PMD Version: 6.7.0-SNAPSHOT (probably earlier)

Rule: any rule, that uses rule chain

Description: If during the rule chain execution an exception occurs (processing error of a specific rule), then all remaining rules in the rule chain for this file are skipped. This leads to not detecting violations, when one rule fails. This leads to false-negatives in the PMD report.

Running PMD through: any

Thanks to @djydewang for finding this bug.
