Subject RE: AW: tracking down where "[trace] null" statements are comming from?

Is it possible to monkey-patch trace() to substitute your own version, and set a breakpoint
in it?

Hey Chris,

This may be a long shot, but how about using a an swf decompiler? I remember ising Trillix
awhile back and was very impressed by the amount of detail provided in the diagnostics - It
may pinpoint the source of your trace statement...

If the source isn't available then you're probably out of luck. Or you can try a decompiler.
