If your script contains an error that would cause a problem with the 
debugger, the debugger will not work and will exit the handler instead. 
This prevents an infinite loop that would otherwise lock up Revolution. 
It is sometimes hard to diagnose these errors. The best way is to set a 
breakpoint (red dot) at the first line of the handler and then step 
through one line at a time. If the debugger stops working and exits, 
then the problem is usually on the line where it stopped.
