I have tried to replicate this issue with code with "DivideByZeroException" and got Unhandled Exception error.Below is the screen cast for the same:


Environment Details:

it's a .pdb to .mdb converter error

Marking as resolved fixed, as there were several improvements on this conversion mechanism.
Please feel free to reopen the issue if you can still reproduce it with current bits.
