thank you very much for your reply. It was important for me to know comments
of a competent person.

AFAIK, currently it is not possible to see values of lexical variables in a
particular stack frame, in normal debugger, right ? We can just press "e"
and evaluate something, but during this evaluation all the dynamic variables
will hold the same values as they hold in the topmost stack frame (where
we're suspended).
