                textArea.setFont(new Font("Sans-Serif", Font.PLAIN, 10));
                StringWriter writer = new StringWriter();
                e.printStackTrace(new PrintWriter(writer));
                // stuff it in a scrollpane with a controlled size.
                JScrollPane scrollPane = new JScrollPane(textArea);                
                scrollPane.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(350, 150));
                // pass the scrollpane to the joptionpane.
