I don't think that it works this way. Probably, the try control  
structure only determines whether a script keeps running after an  
error, if possible, and whether an errorDialog message is sent. I  
don't think that an additional check is made with the execution of  
each individual line. The error handling features are just waiting  
passively for an error to occur.
