Crash reporter does not tell you what the problem is

  • The crash reporter seems to just give a stack trace these days. For example I was fixing up some stuff in system_gateways_edit.php and I put an ordinary "%" sign in a string of text, forgetting to escape it as "%%" and so it went wheels-up expecting a "%s" or "%d". The trace shows the correct line 861, but PHP used to also try to tell you how you had been a Wally in that line of code.

    Is there something we can do to get back the descriptive error/warning message?

    I believe that is coming from xdebug, might need some tweaks in php.ini (by way of /etc/rc.php_ini_setup )
