I'm evaluating Stylus Studio (5.3 build 179h) and up till now I've been delighted with the debugger. However, it has stopped working for me.
When I press F5, the stylesheet is always applied without invoking the Debugger. I've got various breakpoints set, which are passed over. I've tried creating a new scenario. I've tried using the built-in processor and also Xalan-J. I tried shutting Stylus Studio down and restarting, but it still always applies the stylesheet to the whole XML file.
Have I done something wrong, or is this a known bug?
How do I break out of this mode?
How do I prevent it happening again?

Thanks Minollo, that gave me a clue how to find the problem.
The problem didn't happen on the shipped example stylesheets.
In fact, I'm baffled as to what was wrong. The problem went away when I removed a large choose/when clause at the beginning of my main stylesheet. When I reinserted the clause, the problem didn't come back. If I can reproduce the problem I'll get back to you.
