I've checked that the debug mode is checked on my environment.  It is.

I've noticed that there are situations where existing breakpoints from 
previous runs are ignored...so in the code I'm currently developing I've 
got this little voodoo routine:

Click on the blue circle in a square to stop debugging.
Change the code.
If I've got a breakpoint I care about, I must unclick it, and reclick it 
for it to break.
Click on a field in my app window (it's a Windows 7 machine, so that 
click should also go through to the field I'm clicking on.)
Click on the field again.  No input cursor.
Click on the script Editor.
Click on the field again. (now the field has a flashing cursor).

Test the code.

It doesn't stop me, and now I am doing it automatically...but still it's 
frustrating.

I'm on Windows 7 64 bit, Livecode 5.5.1 dp2 (though I've seen this 
behaviour previously, it subjectively seems to be getting worse).
