The way pypy works - no you can not really do that. In Cpython it works 
somewhat better, but not in PYPY. Basically you have to use C debugger to 
locate the crash point, because the program that crashes can not really 
identify where it crashed precisely (well it can but pypy detects crash points 
very unprecisely). So in order to figure where exactly it crashes you have to 
use C debugger. OR, as I have said, add print statements until you localize 
the bug. *This may not work in some cases, as adding print's actually modifies 
the program=> it might not crash at all*
