m-L in the error handler

    In ETHER 24.5, System 78.40, microcode 841, on Xerox Lisp Machine One:

    This is a long-standing complaint.  I wish that M-L in the standard
    error-handler would always (instead of sometimes --- it seems to use
    some strange heuristic) print out as much information as will fit into
    the window it is printing out on.  Typically what happens is that the
    disassembly of the code wraps around and overwrites the description of
    variable values.  I can't read that fast.
What you request is exactly what it does.  So there must be a bug.  Please
provide some specific information.  Perhaps there is some particular flavor
of window on which it does not work?
