    The link to Connect in the feedback text itself doesn't work anymore, thus there is a link to the Stackoverflow page where it all started:
    https://stackoverflow.com/questions/33078116/powershell-catches-wrong-exception-what-am-i-doing-wrong?noredirect=1#comment90857420_33078116

    The Connect page where that link initially pointed at is archived at:
    https://web.archive.org/web/20160826130412/https://connect.microsoft.com/PowerShell/feedback/details/1953815/powershell-4-and-5-catches-wrong-exception-after-some-time
    But the 7z file containing the Powershell code to use for reproduction which I added there as an attachment cannot be downloaded from there. That code surely was cleaned up from noise, but the code from the Stackoverflow link will also work to be able to reproduce.

    A very likely related bug, if not the same, was reported on Stackoverflow here:
    https://stackoverflow.com/questions/36767970/powershell-executes-the-wrong-exception-handler/51953447#51953447
    It is super easy to reproduce if loop range end gets adjusted from 20 to 100.

    The good news:
    I couldn't reproduce any of those to issue on Powershell Core 6.0.4 on Windows, so they seem to be fixed!

    The bad news:
    Those two issues still can be reproduced on Windows Powershell 5.1.14409.1012 on Windows 7 64 bit.
    The only thing that I couldn't reproduce anymore on this Powershell edition was, that if one would outcomment the catch block for the 'DirectoryNotFoundException' exception that it than would behave as expected in my sample code. Even with this outcommented (thus executing) the bug now occurs.

    A backport of this fix(es) in Powershell Core to Windows Powershell would be appreciated.

    Not worth any comment?
    I see quite some feature requests and the like being commented resp. getting a status but very rarely a bug. Shouldn't have bug-fixing a top priority?
    Besides that I think that this uservoice interface is as horrible as can be for serious bug reporting (no useful search, no really functioning tagging system, voting-system may be useful for feature suggestions, but not for bugs...)

    Nice, though quite useless for most Powershell users on Windows who take big advantage from all the current cmdlets in 5.1 which will not anymore be available in Powershell Core.

    As far as I know, development of Powershell got stopped, thus I wouldn't expect this issue and any other issues to be fixed...

    Hope this gets some kind of feedback sooner than my other bug reports.
    You know bug reporting takes some time and if you leave users with the feeling that you don't care anyway then there are better ways to spend that time...
