Dang, I was hoping this would be easy. :(

There are two possibilities that come to mind:
1) The exception types are coming from different versions of the same assembly
2) The exception types come from the same assembly loaded into
different contexts [1].

Both of these are a pain to debug. Your best bet is probably to set up
fuslogvw and check the logs to see if the Selenium assemblies are
being loaded twice.

What I don't get is why a bare except: doesn't catch it. Can you try
replacing the try contents with just 'raise NoSuchElementException()'
and see what happens?
