Good catch, Lee. I've filed this as bug 1015 on CodePlex.

Subject: [IronPython] Exceptions from the console in a background thread...

I'd like to file a low priority bug...under the "wouldn't it be nice if..." category.

When you have an exception occur while using the console, it produces a very nice output (a stack trace including only Python code).

However, if you run this in a background thread you get a monstrosity of a stack trace including C# code with no Python code.  It would be very nice if this printed a nice python stack trace since the error which is returned in a thread is not useful in the slightest.  Here's a quick repro:

>>> def Test():
...     asdf
>>> Test()  # useful stack trace
>>> import thread
>>> thread.start_new_thread(Test, tuple())  # not useful at all
