Hmm, the __exit__ method was doing exact matches by exception type, so KeyError wouldn't match LookupError or Exception.

There are probably a number of ways to fix this, but it may be easiest to use the builtin exception catching mechanisms:

class Ignore:
    ''' Context manager to ignore particular exceptions'''

    def __init__(self, *ignored_exceptions):
        self.ignored_exceptions = ignored_exceptions

    def __enter__(self):
        return self

    def __exit__(self, exctype, excinst, exctb):
        if exctype is not None:
            except self.ignored_exceptions:
                return True
