//@Dan: Do you have a custom errorDialog handler in your message path?

I do not.

    True, but what would anyone go out of their way to write an error

    left alone?

    And some of the error info I see shared in the forums is from newer 
    users, who seem unlikely to have ventured into the relatively arcane 
    world of custom error processing.

    I hope I simply misunderstand what I've been seeing, that perhaps there 
    isn't something broken in recent versions of the IDE's error handling.

    In Dan's message from yesterday he wrote:

       1. Why didn't the debugger throw an error?  Instead, it put this error
          chunk in the message box?
