How to get more information (details) when an error occurs during creation of a tracing database?

An error occurred while attempting to unload the database 'xxx'.
***** SQL error: Syntax error near '' on line 2

How to determine what was really going wrong in the above procedure?

You can manually create a tracing database with dbunload -n -k.

-n ensures that no data is loaded into the tracing database (not that it would do any harm, it just consumes needless space) -k populates a table that maps schema objects from between the production and tracing databases

If you run this dbunload, you can dbinit a database and run the reload script yourself to see where the syntax error is being generated.
