During a refresh() is possible that some beans may throw exceptions which causes the catch(BeanException) block to be executed. In this block the exception is not logged right away which may lead to the exception itself never being reported. Consider the case we encountered where we had (unfortunately) a deadlock situation which only happened once the code in the catch(BeanException) was being executed. The end result was that the system came to a stop and there was no report of any failure because the logging of the exception by spring only happens after the exception is re-thrown

Affects: 3.1.3, 4.0.6

Good point. We're logging such an exception before subsequently trying to cancel the refresh attempt now.
