Yup. What I spot:

: mount-root  ( Empty ) 
00000000ffe35d28: boot-dev$  ( ffe357a8 6 ) 
00000000ffe35d30: fs-pkg$  ( ffe357a8 6 ffe317c0 10 ) 
00000000ffe35d38: $open-package 
: $open-package  ( ffe357a8 6 ffe317c0 10 ) 

It looks like fs-pkg$ names the package it's opening. I'm guessing 
that's hsfs-file-system, but you should probably verify that's what is 
in that string (do a "2dup type" before calling $open-package). If 
that's correct, then rather than descending into open-package, you 
probably want to put a breakpoint at "open" in 
/packages/hsfs-file-system, which is where that will end up after much 
wandering around. Then proceed from there - you really don't want to 
trace through instance creation.

The reason you weren't able to see all that (which would have been 
overwhelming) is a bit further down:

00000000ffe135f0: (lit)  ( 1 ffe2fe38 ffe4b1d8 ffe4b548 ffe135e0 4 ffe4b558 ffe13310 ) 
00000000ffe13600: catch  ( 1 ffe2fe38 ffe4b1d8 ffe4b548 ffffffffffffffff 0 ) 

That's basically a subroutine call to ffe13310, which it didn't show.
