Steve, it is now enough. gen_server is also printing last message
(that may be VERY large) and reason for stop. This reason may also
involve current status, bypassing format_status. And this is also not
the end: proc_lib sends error info to error_logger, including reason.
And it is another way of leaking gen_server status.
