supplementErrorMessage should swallow TypeError

    Details

      Description

      I just saw a case in which an abort due to:

      [warn] creating stub symbol to defer error: bad symbolic reference. A signature in TraceMonitor.class refers to term actors
      [warn] in package scala which is not available.
      [warn] It may be completely missing from the current classpath, or the version on
      [warn] the classpath might be incompatible with the version used when compiling TraceMonitor.class.

      triggered a cyclic reference error in supplement error message, which is not caught by `case _: Exception`, and consequently obscured the original error.
