it's not easy to get the buffer position where the error happens ...

How do you copy them in the xterm window? If you use xterm's clipboard
integration, then you shouldn't expect to get more than xterm can see on
the clipboard.

I was doing exactly that! In the GNU Emacs X client it works, xterm is another X client ...

It would be at least helpful when the lines weren't truncated by some default in some kind of information hiding!
