Ah, yes, indeed, I forgot about that part.  So yes, C-M-c behaves very
similarly (other than details like keeping the window displayed if
there's a upper-level frame marked for debug-on-exit).

`c' always destroys information when it works.  And since it now works
in more cases, it indeed destroys information in more situations.
I think it's a feature.

I already explained.  You just disagree that this is important, and you
instead think it's more important to use the "stop at error" as
a heuristic to prevent you from stepping too far.  My experience
is different, so we disagree.
Have you tried the defadvice I suggested?
