Debugging in 2.5?

I wasn't clear -- I was trying to debug Navigator code. Debugging code 
in other stacks works fine with Navigator open or not.

The rev prefix thing occurred to me between then and now, so since 
you're saying it, I'm going to assume it's true. So not a bug, just an 
inconvenience. Especially so since the last time I checked, a plugin 
won't work without the rev prefix. I'll have to figure out where the 
"if the stack starts with rev, don't debug it" code is.
