Download fails on CM-550

I am using task 3.1.6 as my IDE to write python code and download on to the CM-550

Suddenly my code stopped downloading. I tried disconnecting then reconnecting then I tried rebooting the whole system including shutting down task3.0 and restarting it.

After a lot of playing around I eventually discovered it was failing to download because of a syntax error in my code. Previously any errors in my code wouldn’t stop it from downloading my python script to the CM-550 file system rather I would get a run time error with debug info when executing the script which is the normal behavior to be expected for micropython.

Is this bug for task to fail to download due to error in script??
