There isn't an option like that now but it seems like a reasonable thing 
to add.  I'll make a note of it.

Note that 5.0beta6 moved the exception message to the bottom and scrolls 
to end so both current location and message are visible at the same 
time.  Of course the message should be at top when the stack is reversed.
