It should be logged when it is consumed, because you can never tell if 
you catch a new exception or an already rethrown one.

BTW, do we really need to log exceptions in the components?

I would really like to see the errors caught ONLY by, and 
logged there. It would reduce the problems we are having a LOT.

I have no real control on ecxeptions ATM, because of strange catching,
