[wingide-users] Breakpoints at pass?

In the following fragment of code, a breakpoint set at the "pass" is 
often skipped:

     answer = self.someReturnValue()
     # do stuff here
     if aVariable is None:
         someVariable = self.doSomething()
     return answer

A breakpoint set at the "if" statement works as expected, as does a 
breakpoint set at the "return" statement. I'd like to break at the
"pass" statement so that I can inspect local state before I write code
that will go there.

Am I misunderstanding what "pass" does, or is this a bug?
