errorDialog message

I'm wondering if anyone here has ever used errorDialog to trap and log
errors within a standalone.  I'm trying to do this in order to figure out
why a certain customer is having certain problems with my application.  This
is working and I'm able to log the error details to a file, but the error
details are somewhat cryptic.  The docs seem to indicate that these details
will be similar to what is seen in the error dialog in the Rev IDE, but this
is not the case.

This is the content of one of my log files containing information for three
different errors:

10/27/04 9:31:10 AM
87,1308,18
77,1308,18
449,1308,3,false
535,1308,1,false
241,1308,1,UpdateChecks
353,0,0,stack "/Applications/Read Naturally SE
2/rnse.app/Contents/MacOS/rnstories.rev"
573,17,1,UpdateChecks
241,17,1,preOpenCard
353,0,0,card id 1820 of stack "/Applications/Read Naturally SE
2/rnse.app/Contents/MacOS/rnstories.rev"

10/27/04 9:31:10 AM
253,7,1
241,7,1,mouseUp
353,0,0,button id 5558 of card id 1085 of stack "/Applications/Read
Naturally SE 2/rnse.app/Contents/MacOS/rnstories.rev"

10/28/04 10:05:01 AM
76,321,9
144,321,1
253,315,1
253,314,1
490,313,1
241,313,1,CloseAllStacks
353,0,0,stack "/Applications/Read Naturally SE
2/rnse.app/Contents/MacOS/rnse"


I put the date/time stamp in just to help me keep track of things.  Now, the
first set of info tells me that the error occurred in the UpdateChecks
handler, which was called by preOpenCard of card id 1820 of stack
"rnstories.rev".  That much I understand.  But how can I tell what the
actual error was?  Anyone know?  Do the lists of numbers mean anything?  The
docs refer to the cErrorsList property of card 1 of stack "revErrorDisplay".
I can display that list just fine, but that's all it is, a list of
*possible* errors.  I'm hoping that one of the numbers in the error details
will point me to the line of cErrorsList that contains the error that
occurred.  Does anyone know if this is the case?

Thanks,
