well, at the risk of stating the obvious, i glanced at the source, and
it looks like it invokes the expect 'strace' command:

       strace level
             causes following statements  to  be  printed  before
             being  executed.   (Tcl's trace command traces vari-
             ables.)  level indicates how far down  in  the  call
             stack  to trace.  For example, the following command
             runs Expect while tracing  the  first  4  levels  of
             calls, but none below that.

                 expect -c "strace 4" script.exp

             The -info flag causes strace to return a description
             of the most recent non-info arguments given.

(from the expect manual page.)

I just tried it.  boy, that can be verbose.  8-)
