Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-05-02 18:21:03 UTC
Execution errors - when an execution handler fails - are hidden because MD focuses the output pad, which causes the text editor to lose focus, and the text editor's search view clears the status bar when it loses focus.

The text editor should probably use a statusbar context, and just remove that, instead of potentially clearing other messages. Or, we could just wait until we have a notification system, which will fix it too.

The errors are also not logged, so there's no way to get the details of the exceptions. This makes it very hard to diagnose errors in execution handlers.
