Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In the debugging process, we must find fault locations by investigating infection chains backwards; from failure points to fault.
Since most existing fault localization (FL) approaches don't consider the history of execution states, these approaches fail to find faults in a long infection chain.
We have proposed a FL technique which can consider the history at low cost.
In this reports, we propose the refined technique to apply actual programs and evaluate it with two faulty programs from SIR.
We extend the technique to handle multiple failed traces and refine the definition of statements executed multiple times.
We implement a tool set which generates execution traces and suggests fault locations based on the trace analysis.
Experimental results showed that the chain of data dependencies can improve the locating performance and our technique outperform existing FL approach Tarantula, Ochiai, and $ER5^b$.
