It's not important for the rest of my reply, but can you indicate
exactly where in the doc you are referring to, so I can review whether
this encouragement is worded as well as it could be?

In theory, the trace/source procedure exported from (ossau trace)
should give you this.

Here's an example which works up to a point for me:

  (use-modules (ice-9 debugger) (ossau 
        ice-9-debugger-extensions) (ossau traps) (ossau trace))
  (load "matrix.scm")
  (define (report-exp trap-context)
      (display "Expression: ")
      (display (trace/source trap-context))
  (install-trap (make <procedure-trap> #:procedure mkmatrix
  #:behaviour (list report-exp)))

  (do-main 4)

which prints:

  Expression: matrix.scm:6:2

Note, though, that my dummy matrix.scm looks like this ...

(define (mkmatrix)
  (let ((x 1))

(define (do-main n)

... so 6:2 is the location of the call to mkmatrix, not of mkmatrix's
own code.  Is that what you wanted?

I suspect not, because it doesn't map onto the GDB example that you
gave.  It sounds like what you might in fact want is a report of the
evaluation of each subexpression within mkmatrix.  In that case, the
correct incantation would be something like this:

  (use-modules (ice-9 debugger) (ossau 
        ice-9-debugger-extensions) (ossau traps) (ossau trace) (ossau steps))
  (load "matrix.scm")

  (define (report-exp trap-context)
      (display "Expression: ")
      (display (trace/source trap-context))

  (define (report-subexps trap-context)
    (let ((step-trap (make <step-trap>
                   #:file-name (frame-file-name (tc:frame trap-context))
                   #:behaviour report-exp)))
      (install-trap step-trap)
      (at-exit (tc:depth trap-context)
             (lambda (trap-context)
               (uninstall-trap step-trap)))))

  (install-trap (make <procedure-trap> #:procedure mkmatrix
  #:behaviour (list report-subexps)))

For my dummy matrix.scm, this prints:

  Expression: matrix.scm:2:2
  Expression: matrix.scm:3:20
  Expression: matrix.scm:3:20

Does this help at all?  (I suspect not completely, so please write
