On __exit__(), the 3rd argument "exc_value" should contain the instance of the exception.

But in most cases, it contains only the string representation of the exception.

See attached test case.
Same behavior for KeyError, AttributeError, RuntimeError, ...

Indeed, it seems the exception isn't always normalized.

Has this behavior changed between 2.6 and 2.7?
msg98835 - (view) Author: Antoine Pitrou (pitrou) * (Python committer) Date: 2010-02-04 12:52
No, it's also in 2.6.

Fixed in r77983.

BTW, I'm not going to backport this fix, since the implementation does carry over well to 2.6. Additionally, it is probably an unacceptable change of behavior in a bug fix release.
