I'm not either. (Well, I'm not "the" Scott.)
I think the behavior of 'exit to top' in a 'try' is a separate issue to
what happens to a non-normal exit to a catch section in general.
exit to top
On my system, Rev 2.2, OS X 10.2.8, I get to the 'finally'. It might
not work that way on Jan's.
I think we have a difference of opinion on what should happen here. I
think the 'finally' should be executed. I understand your position to
be that it should not be.
Whatever it is, it should be documented.
