Try/catch error handling not working

function testfunc() {
    try {
        blackberry.io.file.rename("file:///SDCard/test/file1.log", "file1.bak");
    }
    catch (e) {
        alert("An error happened");
        alert(e.message);
    }
}

 

file1 doesn't exist in the specified folder, so this should produce a meaningful error.

 

But on my Bold 9780 the above code produces the first alert and then hangs.  Why?

Re: Try/catch error handling not working

P.S. My config.xml contains:

    <content src="file:///SDCard/testapp/index.html"/>   
    <access uri="file:///SDCard/" subdomains="true">
        <feature id="blackberry.io.dir" />
        <feature id="blackberry.io.file" />
    </access>

and index.html has <body onload="testfunc();">
