That's still the same. We spoke about "additional information" or
you tell what you did as it crashed". Forgot the exact wording.
But if it says it is not good enough, and you can't give any more information,
what else do you want it to do? I see no point in additional 'warnings' - the
point is already made when it said that it is not useful.
