Not that I'm aware of.

A few too many error messages were removed, such that now some operations fail without any error message:


But it looks like that was awhile back, and that probably already got released in 2.3. So we should fix this, but it doesn't block 2.4.

I think this happened after 2.3 though: An interrupt handler was added so that if MacPorts were interrupted by pressing Control-C, it could clean up and leave things in a cleaner state. But some situations are not being considered, such that when you interrupt some operations, a dozen lines of incomprehensible errors are displayed.
