I had one today, it specified the correct function that was responsible for generating the error,  however the line number was way off,  it reported line 1463 but the entire function in question goes from line 708 to line 785.  There is nothing remotely related at line 1463,  it's a completely unrelated procedure that could not have possibly been called at the point the runtime error was received.    The list of procedure/function calls was accurate, just not the line number, which makes it very difficult to figure out exactly what part of the function had the problem.

One situation where this happens, is when line-endings are inconsistent (e.g. on Mac OS X, CR 
instead of LF on some lines).
