Yes. What I was trying to say is that when you're doing something inside
the debugger and an error occurs, another debugger (level) should be
started instead of invalidating what you had been doing. The case I bump
into most often is stepping in Edebug -- when an error occurs, it is
just displayed in the message area, followed by "Cannot return from the
debugger in an error", and that's it, no matter what your
`debug-on-error' settings were.
