Thanks for your comments!
Unfortunately, the debugger will not work with 6.0 - I know. I am toying
with the idea of making a debugger that would work exclusively with .m
(package) files - which need not, of course, contain a package. Such a
file could be read in by the debugger and pre-processed to insert line
number information - thus avoiding the use of TraceScan and the heavy
overhead per step. This approach would preserve the line number
information and would probably run acceptably fast.
I guess I am waiting for the next release of Mathematica to see if they
make the debugger more usable - if they don't, I will probably release
