how to print stack trace when TimeConstrained times out

According to the documentation, TimeConstrained generates an interrupt which interrupts the computation. This interrupt is treated just like an abort, at least in the sense that it respects AbortProtect.

I want to see the contents of the stack at the time the abort is generated, before the aborted evaluation is removed from the stack. I tried this:

changeAbort[] :=
  testAbort = True;
  Abort[args___] :=
     Print[Stack[_]]; (* in real life, to a log file *)
     Block[{testAbort = False}, Abort[args]]
   ) /; testAbort

This works for aborts that I generate myself. For example,

While[True, Abort[]]

aborts and prints the following stack trace:


Along (spiritually) similar lines, I can print the the stack at the time a message is displayed with this code:

Internal`AddHandler["Message", Print[Stack[_]]&];

Getting back to TimeConstrained, neither of the following give me a stack trace:

changeAbort[];TimeConstrained[While[True, Null], 1]
TimeConstrained[changeAbort[]; While[True, Null], 1]

The last line was written in case TimeConstrained was implemented by temporarily redefining Abort. Unfortunately, it doesn't work.

Is there some way to intercept the interrupt generated by TimeConstrained so that I can get a stack trace of the aborted computation, before it is removed from the stack?
