Description
The wording of the spec:

    Exception events are generated whenever an exception is first
    detected in a Java programming language method. 

has lead them to believe (quite understandably) that other java.lang.Throwable are not reported.  Where in reality, all throws are reported.

EVALUATION Should be clarified
