Please add symbol name to "can't find symbol" error message, it would allow to quickly spot what is wrong. Now we have to position cursor at given row and column to find that name.

Done, thanks for suggestion!

Github sometimes (but not every time) automatically closes bugs, probably because commit message is of the form "Fixed #...". This should be stopped.

It turns out, "Fixed #N" would trigger closing issue #N, but "Fixed bug #N" wouldn't. Most confusing. :)

Fixed #147 "Please add symbol name to "can't find symbol" error messa…
…ge".

As suggested by sirzooro:
    Please add symbol name to "can't find symbol" error message,
    it would allow to quickly spot what is wrong. Now we have to
    position cursor at given row and column to find that name.

Also tweaked error reporitng function to append "..." at the end
of the message if it didn't fit into buffer.
