Hiding alert-box and logging a TypeError? exception away which is triggered by (probably what is misusage of) dm4c.ui.dialog().open().

Note: The usage of "JSON.stringify(e)" in the catch block of open_upload_dialog (dm4-files plugin) makes errors (done in callback implementations after file upload is complete) disappear/invisible. This method seems to just swallows non-json like strings, returning just an empty object "{}".

The way it is third party plugin developers can not easily see that they have an error in their code because the alert-box of the files-plugin just says: "Exception={}"

Would there be a major disadvantage not wrapping the "e" in stringify()? I am asking since imo this would make it easier for developers to see that they have an error in their callback implementation (=file-upload-complete handler called in open_upload_dialog).
