Description:
In testing WB configuration file editor, I managed to add --enable-pstack to my.ini.  On Windows, mysqld does not start with this enabled, and it seems possible that this is a platform-specific option?

091203 13:19:13 [ERROR] bin\mysqld.exe: unknown option '--enable-pstack'
091203 13:19:13 [ERROR] Aborting

Please adjust documentation accordingly so that any platform dependencies are noted.

Thank you for your bug report. This issue has been addressed in the documentation. The updated documentation will appear on our website shortly, and will be included in the next release of the relevant products.

Updated option description:

Print a symbolic stack trace on failure. This capability is available
only on Intel Linux systems, and only if MySQL was configured with 
the --with-pstack option.
