Use the "breakpoint" command.  The debugger must be open before you send the
message that runs the script though.  Also, if the stack is not toplevel or
is a Revolution stack, you may need to open the message box (after opening
the debugger) and run:

set the traceStack to the mouseStack

To force the debugger to "watch" that stack before starting to run.

Kind regards,
