Thankfully I haven't been in this situation. But I stand by my claim -
if it's possible, it's often faster to insert io:format calls into the
call than to try to make sense of hundreds of lines of trace generated by
two simple function calls. Actually it would be nice if we'd have a tool
that could parse such trace and the source code and could show me that
which function was called...

  tried it."
