Under liunx stack trace works fine in 3.0.2. Under Windows it's not
implemented at all (unless using a crazy hack self-exception-raising
hack that works only under MSVC).

I can work this around by having our own Windows stack walker - after
all the whole purpose  of the crash reporter was easy debug reports for
Windows users. Under Linux everyone knows how to use a debugger,
otherwise it's impossible to work ;-)
