I think that's normal behaviour... in essence, raise_application_error is just a slightly fancier version of raise. SQL> begin
  2 raise_application_error(-20400, 'This is bad... real bad.');   3 exception

  4     when others then
  5        dbms_output.put_line('Panic!');
  6 end;
  7 /

PL/SQL procedure successfully completed.

Of course, it's always possible that I'm misinterpreting something. Any chance of sharing the relevant code snippet(s)?
