In your case, I'm not sure if an exception is even being thrown.

Calling Session.Connect() without args is equivalent to pressing the Reconnect button on the toolbar.

If all you are doing is passing on the exception, why even bother with the exception type? If you just use except: without specifying an exception type, I'm thinking that you would most likely still see the pop-up.

The only way to suppress Connect() related pop-up messages via scripting is to supply parameters to the Connect call sufficient to suppress pop-up messages which, in your case I'm guessing isn't how you want to use Connect() (because you likely want to leverage the fact that the tab has already been connected and you just want to have it reconnected since it's been disconnected for some time).

I've added a feature request for a way via scripting to reconnect a tab without any popups so that you can handle connection errors via a script.

I don't have any ETA on when/if this might ever become available, but if it does we can post here and inform you and the forum community.
