Hi and thank you.

This behavior only for the specific error.

Ok, but isn't it the case that listeners are only executed on the JMeter controller in distributed
mode and not on the agents? Therefore the variable that would be set would not be available
on the agent executing the test.

See my comment above, I don't think this is a good solution.

On easy example: The server is restarted during a long load test run. All subsequent requests
would be meaningless as the session is lost.
