What do you call a "stack trace"? I use this term in the C language, especially when using the "where" command of gdb. In Python, the stack trace is called a "traceback". Anyway, faulthandler prints the Python trace, not the C trace, so I prefer to call it a "traceback" than "stack trace".

faulthandler.dump_traceback() output is similar to:

        raise ValueError()
        exctype, value, tb = sys.exc_info()

faulthandler doesn't print the line from the script, only the function name, file name and line number; and the first line is different.
