In the particular case of a NoClassDefFoundError, I think it would be 
good to report it to users as it is often caused by a configuration 
problem that we'd like to explain as clearly as possible to the user.

But it might be dangerous, could cause infinite loops maybe?

Is it possible to include additional information (exception info, stack 
trace) with the 500 error? If so it would be a good solution, even if 
not visible in the browser we could tell users to have a look with wget 
if they suspect they're getting an "invisible" error.
