[Dancer-users] Dancer::Test and negative testing, error reporting

Dear List, 

I casually use `die` inside my handlers to report errors. 
This works ok when i use the application with the browser. 

The `die`s are translated to HTTP 500, the error is reported to the

Now my problem:
I want to test corner-cases in my Dancer::Test cases. But in the
test-cases, my `die`s are not translated to HTTP 500, instead the test
dies "Dubiously".

Is there a way to get Dancer::Test to behave like Dancer w/o Test?
I really don't want to `eval` all my tests - set aside that this would
also not allow me to test for HTTP 500.

Alternatively, how should error reporting happen without `die`? I miss
my structured exception handling...

Any help greatly appreciated,
