TestEvent.error == null when tests are forked #543

I'm trying to use a test reporting plugin (, but it's not working well when I've specified fork := true. It looks like ForkMain just throws away the exception message for failed tests. Even if it can't send the actual exception object back to the main SBT JVM, maybe it could toString the message and stack trace it and wrap it in a special Exception type, so any test listeners could pick it up.
