Google results suggest that this is a Red Hat thing: abrt = Automatic
Bug Reporting Tool.


I'm not a Red Hat person myself (I use Debian), so I can't really much
help; but my suspicion is that it'll be logging the full traceback
somewhere (some of the posts I found referred to it sending mail, so
you might find it in your /var/spool/mail).

Alternatively, are you able to simply run the script from the command
line? That ought to make the traceback come to your console. Not
possible if it's a CGI script or something, though.
