[New-bugs-announce] [issue16924] try: except: ordering error

New submission from Justin Eittreim:

When running multiple nested loops (to emulate the circumstances of a program running multiple different modules at once,) each with their own try: except: block (in this case for KeyboardInterrupt,) the order of operations seems to fall out of place. As you can see in the screenshot, even though the inner-most loop should never have been left (or ended for that matter,) the parent loop catches the exception in its place on occasion. While this isn't necessarily a huge issue, for certain things it can be rather annoying and downright confusing. For most all other languages, for example, the inner-most loop would, of course, catch the exception first.

Requesting more insight on this issue.
