Feedback ID: 1156994

Frequency: Always Happens
Regression: I do not know if this issue existed previously

Problem Description:
If a workflow uses deep nesting (at least 3 levels of nesting), erroraction does not work. This is reproducable in both the V4 and V5 feb preview of the WMF.

Product Studio item created by Connect Synchronizer due to creation of feedback ID 1156994 (

Repro Steps:
Consider the following 3 workflows
workflow one
Write-Output "one"

workflow two


workflow three
two -ErrorAction Stop

this code does not compile. If removing the "ErrorAction" parameter in workflow three, it works.

Expected Results:
workflow should compile.
