npx seems to swallow Node.js stack traces

What I Wanted to Do

Have a stack trace printed to me when an exception occurs.

What Happened Instead

It wasn’t printed. Got only a single line error.

Reproduction Steps

I dunno. Launch something with npx that crashes. See no stack trace. I didn’t make a reproduction. And then for comparison, run it without npx (directly with node).


Platform Info
