Unless you are using a framework like Twisted, where all potentially blocking operations are handled by passing in a function to be called when the operation is complete, so that the stack trace is non-existent.  This way you get both the joy of working with a language where simple mistakes won't be caught automatically until they cause a failure at runtime *and* the joy of not having traces that tell you exactly what led up to an error.  Fun times.

Not that I'm bitter...  :-)
