I also wish there were an Meta-. equivalent within the backtrace commands
menu that would jump to the definition of the function called in the
current stack frame.  But I agree that showing the disassembled code
near the PC is one of the biggest problems with the MCL "debugger".
In fact, I think this is one of the biggest problems with MCL
overall.  It's about the only thing I really miss from the Lisp
Machine days; hitting c-n, c-p to move up and down the stack, 
and then hitting c-e to jump into the editor looking at the exact
line where the bug can be found.  Now THAT was a debugger...
