No. It is on a Linux server on the other side of the country, about 3000

Well, I don't think this is the case...I believe I have finally got  
all the
mappings worked out. (I sent in another ticket/mailing list email a  
of weeks ago on this matter, and got some help from someone at

OK, I put in an
assert False

and that definitely raised an exception and stopped at that point in the

It's hard to "pause" the IDE while the CGI is running. ('Tis the  
nature of
CGI that the script should complete fairly quickly...by the time I  
it in the browser and switch to the IDE it's usually done...but I did
manage it once about of about 5 tries, and it did pause for me.)

So are we sane? What did the results of the sanity test show?

Anyway, after I conducted the above two tests, the IDE started  
working as I
expected it to and stopping on breakpoints I had put in the code.

I didn't change anything. I'm totally flabbergasted as to why it worked
last night but didn't previously. Sigh....
