Perl Debugging Problems...

   I wonder if someone here already have any experience with this.

   I'm trying to debug a test script, and everything runs quite well  
until I reach the second test function, where suddently all my  
debugger status is lost and I stop to seeing source, actions, my  
current position in the code and breakpoints. The commands to showing  
those things doesn't throw me any errors, but there is no results  
printed out.

   The funny thing is that the program still running, and I can  
command my debugger, in some ways. I can't have new breakpoints  
setted, nor the old ones are respected; I can restart debugging (and  
everything gets back normal again); I can step ('n' or 's') and I can  
see the program output.

   I don't think this is a bug of the Perl debugger, but I need to  
debug the code and I have no ideas about how to getting back to the  
"normal behavior" I expect from the Perl debugger.

   I have no ideas about how to reduce my code to a small test case  
that works, please help me keeping the needed parts of it if you have  
any simmilar experience.
