wait_for swallows Selenium CommandErrors

When using wait for and there is a command error inside of the block (like a typo in an xpath selector) you get a timeout failure because the command error is swallowed and silently ignored. This makes troubleshooting typos extremely difficult because the failures become misleading.

This is in selenium_session.rb WebRat::SeleniumSession#is_ignorable_wait_for_exception

Thanks for the report... Yes, I'd like to improve these error messages.

Can you grab an example of what's currently happening and what you'd like to happen in an ideal world?
