I am currently working in AutoCAD 2012 and have received the common "Error handler" message frequently. The hard part is I can't pinpoint when and why this is occurring. It happens in the middle of an action, no action specifically. I operate in AutoCAD fairly quickly - could the constant commanding back-to-back make this error come up?
I really have no idea, I'm grasping at straws. Its pretty frustrating, I continuously lose data when AutoCAD shuts down unexpectedly without offering a chance to create a recover file...
I'm sure this is a topic that has been brought up again and again, but as many times as I've searched for an answer to it, my forum postings I've read never actually arrive at a resolution.

Can you upload a screenshot for us that shows how the message looks like exactly?
My first idea about "error handler" was that you have an application or a tool written in LISP that shows errors in the command-line, if so, try to unload them, at least for a trial period to see if the messages and the crashes disappear while these app/tools are not loaded.
But that's just one thought, maybe when seeing the screenshot there are also other ideas that come up.

Hey there. It's actually difficult to get a screenshot (it happens so quickly), but I will definitely try to get one next time it occurs. The message is: "Error handler reentered. Exiting now." The problem is that I keep thinking I know what the cause is...for instance, the first two times it has happened, I had inserted a raster image...but then the third time I was in the middle of scaling...
I move pretty quickly in CAD and use hotkeys quickly. I think it has someting to do the rate at which commands are being entered one after another but that's just a guess...

Please start at "where does the message appear", is it a dialog box appearing and disappearing or does it show up in command-line.
If command-line (what I imagine) you always can switch to the big version (of the command-window) using <F2> and scroll up to where the error message is placed.
