      Description

      Assume the following scenarios:

      Scenario A)
      A template has the following line:
      #parse("never-found-template.vm")

      Scenario B)
      A template has the following line:
      #parse($nonsense)

      Assume further, that neither the "never-found-template.vm" is present nor the variable "$nonsense" is set.

      In scenario A) the log reports "#parse(): cannot find template 'never-found-template.vm', called from template ... at (1, 1)"
      In scenario B) the log says "#parse() null argument"

      Problem:
      In scenario B), having multiple nested #parse-Statements, it's hard to find the error finally.

      Sugestion / Feature request:
      Include source information and line numbers when reporting "#parse() null argument" - analogous to scenario A)

      Thanks and kind regards
