Note that they’re actually talking about the latest stable Opera release as well. (There is no Opera 9.8; only the user agent string says that.)

Here is a screen shot:

These are all just false positives from internal situations where we have exceptions caught. I see this one in as well without jQuery:

In both cases it is clearly not an **unhandled** exception, the try-catch is RIGHT THERE above the line that throws. The only way I can see to avoid it breaking is to turn off the "Show parse errors and break on exceptions" although I'd prefer to still show parse error and only break on unhandled exceptions.

12.50 does not stop on handled exception by default anymore. So yeah.
