Put anywhere in bad_line_number.clj, run with clj -J-Dclojure.main.report=stderr -Sdeps '{:paths ["."]}' -M -m bad-line-number from the same dir.

(ns bad-line-number)

(defn returns-a-tuple []
  [{1 2} :wrapped])

(defn should-also-return-a-tuple-but-doesnt [data]
  {data :unwrapped})

(defn -main []
  (let [[a fmt] (returns-a-tuple)
          (should-also-return-a-tuple-but-doesnt a)
          (catch Throwable _
            (println "Unable to create a map")
            [3 4]))

        [x y]
        (case fmt
          :wrapped data
          :unwrapped [data nil])]
    [x y]))

Running that code results in

 "Execution error (UnsupportedOperationException) at bad-line-number/-main (bad_line_number.clj:10).\nnth not supported on this type: PersistentArrayMap\n",

Execution error (UnsupportedOperationException) at bad-line-number/-main (bad_line_number.clj:10).
nth not supported on this type: PersistentArrayMap

As you can see, it refers to line 10, which has (let [[a fmt] (returns-a-tuple), so naturally the first line of thinking is "returns-a-tuple somehow returns a map, and that's what I need to investigate".
Just spent a few hours chasing that goose when it's actually should-also-return-a-tuple-but-doesnt that's to blame.
