<g (in case you didn't see this coming)> Well, PowerDebug *does* catch
errors in modal dialogs. Debugging modal dialogs is a bit of a tricky
situation, though, because the dialog is still active and fighting for
control. Using PowerDebug the proper procedure once you've gotten the
runtime error dialog is to press the Debug button, which will
highlight the offending line of code, abort the debugger, then close
the modal dialog and fix the script.
