luaL_error (unlike lua_error) prepends line info [1].  In fact, the
implementation of luaL_error calls luaL_where [2]:

  LUALIB_API int luaL_error (lua_State *L, const char *fmt, ...) {
    va_list argp;
    va_start(argp, fmt);
    luaL_where(L, 1);
    lua_pushvfstring(L, fmt, argp);
    lua_concat(L, 2);
    return lua_error(L);
