Hello all,
I have been running findbugs on my project for a while but I have recently noticed some code like this:

catch( Exception e ){}

This is not detected by DE_MIGHT_IGNORE but code like:

finally
{
  try
  {
    doSomething();
  }
  catch( Exception e ){}
}

is flagged. In my opinion the only place where it can possibly be correct to ignore an exception in within a finally e.g. tidying up a JDBC resources so why is my first code example not flagged as a bug?
