Yes, thank you, but while this is true most of the time, it is not
always true -- and sometimes the text is slightly different (usually: a
"user-error: " or "call-interactively: " can be prepended, or " [n
times]" can be appended).

I do admit that the following would be good enough in all cases I can
think of:

(with-current-buffer "*Messages*"
    (goto-char (point-max))
    (skip-chars-backward "\n")
    (buffer-substring-no-properties (point) 
                                      (skip-chars-backward "^\n")
