Huh? The change you showed wasn't reverted AFAICT; it's still on the trunk.

It looks like the original change (not the change you listed) should've
been using "issubclass(etype, BaseException)". (I only reverted the
removal of 'isinstance()', which was causing string exceptions to break.)
Anyway, looks like a four-letter fix (i.e. add "Base" there), unless there
was some other problem I'm missing?
