Promises and event handlers have a tendency to swallow error messages.

Now that we are making use of promises we really need to improve our output of error messages across the board. This is quite a barrier for new contributors.

If there is an error somewhere then a developer should be able to see what it is and where even if the web console is broken.
Could you provide an example of where promises are incorrectly swallowing promsies?

Okay, they are doing it correctly but our tools should report errors if they exist and at the moment they generally don't.
Will be fixed by a new promise library, not in this bug.
