When you test a method that throws an exception and you have some expressions in the Watch window that also generates exceptions, the unit test gets the exception from the Watch window instead of the one trhown by the method.

I found this problem when working with a SqlDataReader but I think it will fail whennever the Whatch window generates an exception.

Thanks Yvan for reporting this issue.

In unit test framework, we don't do any special handling for watch window and probably that's the way system work.
