Well, don't feel like you need to boil the exception raising example down
too far. As I said, a good guess is that a system call is not being
wrapped in the restart handler, and we just need to figure out which one.
Hence, we just need to observe the runtime behavior of the program (and
it's exception history), rather than inspect the compile-time intermediate
programs (which is what we would need to do to debug an optimization pass
bug, and for which small test programs are useful because we are
inspecting lots of intermediate code). Hence, it doesn't matter all that
much how big the example program is, so long as it has the right runtime
