Hi. I'm using the org included with a very recent emacs built from git.

I have a large project consisting of many .org files that I'm exporting
to html. Somewhere there's a broken link, so when I export the project I
get

  user-error: Unable to resolve link: "figures/blahblahblah.svg"

This doesn't tell me where the problem is, specifically, so to find out
I

  (setq debug-on-error t)

and go again. But something about the org code is preventing the
debugger from triggering on this. That really shouldn't be happening.
This is an error that's causing the export to give up and quit, and the
debugger should come up (when debug-on-error).

Also, it would be nice if the error message reported the source file and
line number of the bad link.

Thanks!

It's not Org specific; it's a default behavioral difference between
error and user-error:

,----[ C-h f user-error RET ]
| [...]
| In contrast with other errors, user errors normally do not cause
| entry to the debugger, even when ‘debug-on-error’ is non-nil.
| This can be overridden by ‘debug-ignored-errors’.
`----

That does sound helpful.  Completely guessing, but I would think the
source file but not the line number may be easily obtainable when the
org-link-broken error (later converted to a user-error) is signaled.

You may find setting org-export-with-broken-links to `mark' helpful for
locating the broken links, though it marks the broken links in the
output, so the results still need to be mapped back to the corresponding
source file.
