So far, I've seen _one_ useful stack dump posted to this list.  The others
have just caused extra hassle & confusion for our users.  And that
one stack dump was from Ryan , after repeated to-ing-and-froing with a
repeatable problem -- so he could have turned on an option very easily.

It's only useful if you've also got the System.map.  If we didn't do
the stack dump, the users would probably send more information which
came before the stack dump.
