PayPal, silent error from address validation

PayPal, silent error from address validation

Good day,


When a customer enters an invalid address and they try to use PayPal, they are bounced back to the shopping cart with no visible error.  This is caused by PayPal's address validation as described below [1].  The var/log/exception.log file shows the error below [2].  We would like to show the customer the error message.  Otherwise we would like to disable PayPal's address validation.  Is there an official fix for this problem?  Or is there a way to fix it without editing a core file?


Thank you,
