Another very quick glance suggests that it was "svn_error_trace".

I apologise if I misled you into thinking you should focus your time and
energy on that.

... but this makes me ponder that my notes tend to be scribbled quite
quickly, the only goal of them being to potentially save someone (or
myself) some time looking in the right place or perhaps confirming
their own investigation, rather than being something that can be 110%
trusted or otherwise treated as gospel. I'd rather write a note,
however unconfirmed, than not, if you see what I mean.

Best wishes,
