[Qt Creator does the same btw] So for me, too, yes.

But in any case it would be nice to be as open as (easily) possible
to other approaches and not to force some design decision on a
frontend. In case of  -stack-list-locals-and-args  that would be 
possible by e.g. adding a  kind="arg" / kind="local" flag or such.

On a related note, can't we have the contents of a 
'-stack-list-locals-and-args' in the *stopped  message?

_That_ would save a roundtrip, -stack-list-locals-and-args would
probably not save time at all, at best remove twenty lines of
frontend code...
