So, I now understand why I couldn't catch the error -- I just  
happened to be doing my own logging to stderr and thought the log  
messages I saw were an actual traceback.

I have a simple solution for this issue, if anyone would care to  
check out my patch attached to the ticket above.

I know this is a pretty minor issue, but it's tickling my "coder's  
OCD" ;-)...
