I'm trying to track down some problems that involve MNUs in the
Scriptaculous code running in GemStone.
It looks like an MNU or any other Error gets caught by the
WalkbackErrorHandler and Seaside goes into a RenderLoop ... presumably
kicking out a redirect that gets ignored by the java script running in
As a result Errors in the underlying Smalltalk code go undetected.
You can see the same behavior if you introduce an MNU in
SUAutoCompleterTest>>renderListOn: in Squeak...the error goes undetected
... drop in a self halt and a debugger pops up.
I don't have a good idea on how to detect Errors in the SU stack,
without being able to ask a question like: "Is this an asynchronous HTTP
Poking around in the stack, there's nothing obvious to 'hang my hat on'...
