Ifthis number is the correct number, I don't know how it can be more "complete". Can you be more specific and possibily open an issue in byebug with whatever is wrong/missing?

e.g. byebug is unable to detect additional frame added by rescue thus it will not be able to provide information about the frame.

Feature #10844: TracePoint API needs an event to inform about creating/removing a new frame without calling something

----------------------------------------
There are some situations when Ruby VM creates a new frame even if there isno calls
E.g. ensure create a new block.
Here is a simple program which shows that the frame is added but no event is reported.
It is important to known about such situations to correctly implement stepping in debugger.
It would be nice if the api reports about such situations with something like :start_frame/:end events.
What do you think?

~~~ruby
def actual_stack_size(frames_to_skip=3)
  bt = Thread.current.backtrace_locations(frames_to_skip)
  bt.size
end
TracePoint.new do |tp|
  printf "%8s %s:%-2d %13s %d\n", tp.event, tp.path, tp.lineno, tp.method_id, actual_stack_size
end.enable

begin
  raise
rescue
  'error'
end
