No more exception from batchPlay select operation

Previously, trying to select a missing layer or channel via batchPlay was resulting in exception. It’s not anymore.
Does anybody know what is the right way now to know that batchPlay actually failed? I don’t see anything in the resulting descriptor.
I expect following code to fail with exception

await require("photoshop").action.batchPlay([
          _obj: "select",
          _target: [
              _ref: "channel",
              _name: "Non Existing Channel",
      ], {synchronousExecution: false,
        modalBehavior: "fail"})

Both selecting existing and non-existing channel results in an empty descriptor for some reason.
