Hey Chrisptoph,

you've got me stuck to this now!

The cleanest approach would be to extend Mb_exception with an additional 
and optional parameter: the callback function!

function Mb_exception(message, callbackfunction) {
  // make callback optional without raising an error
  if (typeof callbackfunction != 'function') {
     callbackfunction  = function() {};
   // always pass in callback function
   mb_ajax_post('../php/mb_js_exception.php', {text:message}, 
callbackfunction );

(The wrapping stuff should than be updated as well, not sure about this, 
but you'll get the idea)

one could the call it this way:

var myCallbackAfterSuccessfullLogging = function (text, status) {
  if (text == 'false') {
    alert('something has gone terribly wrong, and we could not even log 
  } else if (text == 'true') {
    alert('something has gone terribly wrong, but the error at least 
could be logged');
    // put the critical functions within this block, and you're done.

Mb_exception('This is the error message',
