Yes, that's what I would expect.  I also tried doing what you did with a
custom .oct file, but the error was still not displayed in that case for me.

As far as I can tell, this is where the error is generated:


That looks correct to me.  When I do exactly the same (use error() in
C++) in an .oct file of mine, it works, though.  That's why I guess it
could be related to packages somehow.
