Wrong catch clauses order

Reports the exceptions that are already caught by a preceding exception and the exceptions that are caught twice.

The catch clauses must be ordered from more specific to more generic ones. Otherwise, some exceptions may not be caught by the most specific handler.

See Exceptions ( for details.
