[IronPython] DW.exe...

Are you using IronPython 0.9.6? The 0.9.6 version of IronPython should catch unhandled exceptions and print stack trace rather than passing the exception to the OS (for Dr. Watson - hence DW.exe)

As for the 0.9.5 version of IronPytohn, there was a known problem, a change in our exception handling logic that would pass unhandled exceptions to the OS which then triggers Watson.

Please let me know if you have problems on IronPython 0.9.6 and, if so, do you use IronPython from console (IronPythonConsole.exe) or is it embedded in another application?

Subject: [IronPython] DW.exe...

Hi all,

Playing with the November Avalon CTP, and when my script causes an
exception through an incorrect parameter or similar (in the Avalon
bits) a new process of DW.exe gets spawned.

I see that DW is just dumping data for a bug report, but filing a bug
report for a bad argument is a bit ludicrous, I thought.

Is this IronPython or solely Avalon doing this?

Can anyone offer suggestions on preventing it?
