tdump works by scanning the tracepoint's current collection
actions and printing the value of each expression listed. So
tdump can fail, if after a run, you change the tracepoint's
actions to mention variables that were not collected during the run.
Also, for tracepoints with
uses the collected value of
$pc to distinguish between trace
frames that were collected at the tracepoint hit, and frames that were
collected while stepping. This allows it to correctly choose whether
to display the basic list of collections, or the collections from the
body of the while-stepping loop. However, if
$pc was not collected,
tdump will always attempt to dump using the basic collection
list, and may fail if a while-stepping frame does not include all the
same data that is collected at the tracepoint hit.
