If you are using tODE a couple of different tricks come to mind ...

The tODE debugger underlines stack frames with the same receiver, so you 
could click on a frame the debugger and then scroll down the stack to 
see if you can recognize a pattern in the stack with different receivers...

Select the `Window>print window` menu item in the frame list pane of the 
debugger, then select the name of a likely method and then use the 
`Text>set search string` menu item to get the nice search string 
highlighting and then scroll through the text window looking for matches 
or use the `Text>find again` menu item to jump to the next occurrence of 
the string ...

Select the `Window>inspect client element` menu item in the frame list 
pane, scroll down to and select the `theObject` field, then select the 
`stackNode` field and then select the `frames` field and you'll be 
looking at an ordered collection of tode context objects. Pressing `esc` 
while looking at the collection will bring up a ws window whose self is 
the collection ... then you could write some smalltalk code scanning the 
stack for repeating patterns ...
