      Original request
      In one of our more complex scripted pipelines with special exception/error handling, the error step visualization keeps changing after a while, so that it does not show the error step as failing anymore (and so also no auto-scroll to error works)!?

      I tried to reproduce it to no avail; this is the basic pipeline code (the last and active section in the code being the closest to the original one):

      node {
          // OK:
          /*
          stage('failing-stage') {
              echo 'hello'
              error 'fail on purpose...'
          }
          */
          
          // OK: shows msg in red and expands it
          /*
          stage('failing-stage') {
              echo 'hello'
              try {
                  error 'fail on purpose...'
              } catch (e) {
                  echo "Caught exception: ${e}"
              }
          }
          */
      
          // OK: shows msg in red and expands it
          /*
          stage('failing-stage') {
              echo 'hello'
              try {
                  error 'fail on purpose...'
              } catch (e) {
                  echo "Caught exception: ${e}"
                  throw e
              }
          }
          */
      
          // OK: shows msg in red and expands it
          stage('failing-stage') {
              echo 'hello'
              try {
                  error 'fail on purpose...'
              } catch (e) {
                  ansiColor('xterm') {
                    echo "\033[1;31mCaught exception: ${e}\033[0m bla bla"
                  }
                  throw e
              } finally {
                  echo "finally"
              }
          }
      }
      

      Initially it works fine and looks like this:

      But at one point it stops showing the error step as error! And the AJAX request that fetches the steps (e.g. https://<JENKINS URL>/blue/rest/organizations/jenkins/pipelines/My-Pipeline/runs/414/nodes/60/steps/) shows matching symptoms:
