Problems with debug step command on untilTrue:/untilFalse:

The GemStone debugging step operator, used from either the GBS debugger
or the topaz step command, exhibits various problems when stepping though
untilTrue:/untilFalse: statements and their associated blocks.

In some cases, the debugger gets stuck on the untilTrue:/untilFalse:
statement.  Repeated uses of the step command will not advance the program
counter beyond the untilTrue:/untilFalse: statement.

In other cases, spurious execution errors are triggered by statements
within the block.

Workaround

Use breakpoints and "continue" from one breakpoint to the next, rather
than stepping through the code.
