    500 error despite site-wide error handler

    dcoli Level 1

      Hi,

       

      Users are getting this message, despite having the default error page turned on:

       

      HTTP Status 500 - ROOT CAUSE: coldfusion.filter.FormScope$PostParametersLimitExceededException: POST parameters exceeds the maximum limit specified in the server.

       

      I know why I'm getting the error -- I need to reduce the form size to comply with a recent update that put in the post parameters limit -- but a user who isn't even in the list of debugging IPs shouldn't see this error. Is there something about a 500 error like this that is such a big deal that even Coldfusion can't handle it? My guess is that must be Tomcat which is throwing the error, so ColdFusion can't intercede and display the default error page.
