In those 10 places add 2 lines:

try ...
with Not_found -> assert false

where ... is the old code.

You will obtain exactly the behaviour you want: the file and line will
be reported by the runtime system.

(Joking) Furthermore, your boss will be proud of you since the program will be
10 lines longer (Joking).
