Magento Obfuscating Error Messages

I’m using as a payment gateway, and have activated some features in their Fraud Detection Suite.  I’ve opted in the case of shipping/billing mismatch to decline authorization, and this has caused a problem with Magento.

Specifically, sends response strings when a transaction is declined (for whatever reason), but Magento is replacing the error message that pops up with a very generic one:

Payment capturing error.

A customer who should receive notification that they should try using the same address for shipping and billing gets no meaningful feedback.  How can I fix my cart so that’s error strings aren’t replaced by Magento’s ambiguous messages?

I’ve tried searching for answers to this for hours and found a few abandoned forum posts about this issue but no solutions.
