All exceptions are associated with the tasks encountering them.
The only exceptions propagated to UncaughtExceptionHandlers
are resource exhaustion, internal errors, and setup errors mode by
people extending class ForkJoinWorkerThread.

If you'd like certain kinds of exceptions to instead trigger
some sort of coordinated error response, you could create
your own variant of AdaptedRunnable that probes via getException.

While I'm at it: the current CVS commit almost completes this
round of updates. (I still plan a few non-essential changes
to fit internals together better under new submission scheme
etc but these won't happen immediately.)
