Hi all, I recently spent an interesting hour trying to figure out why a particular render wasn't working. I was getting the error message: syntax error, unexpected ')', expecting '=' The line that was "failing" (that is, the very first line in the stack trace produced) looked like this: <%= render student %> The error, of course, wasn't there; it was in the partial that "student" corresponded to (the layout "/users/_user.html.erb"). Once I realized this, it took all of three seconds to find a typo I had made. I think this is a bit of a usability issue -- is there any way I could configure (or patch) Rails to get the stacktrace to show me the partial that was failing, rather than the penultimate (and perfectly fine) layout? I hope I'm explaining this issue coherently. Thanks, Ulysse
