You really scared me with your previous email :).

Anyway, if you ever decide to catch ThreadAbortException anywhere in the
asp.net pipeline, bear in mind that it's used also when the configured
timeout is reached. So if you're doing something that takes longer than
that, catch the exception and keep going, it might be too easy to cause
the threadpool to be exhausted.
