[IronPython] Iron Python debuggin using PythonEngine

Debugging needs to be globally enabled - but once it is ExecuteFile will produce debuggable code.  To globally enable debugging in 1.x you do:

            EngineOptions eo = new EngineOptions();
            eo.ClrDebuggingEnabled = true;
            PythonEngine eng = new PythonEngine(eo);

To create the PythonEngine.

Subject: [IronPython] Iron Python debuggin using PythonEngine

Hello all, This is my first post so bear with me!

My company is using iron python as an embedded scripting engine and we are loving every piece of it.  I just downloaded IronPython Studio and am working on making our scripts available to the studio for editing so we can get intellisense.  As a side project I wanted to see if I could get Iron Python to work with break points. In python studio I "ran without debugging" this piece of code.  It forced me to connect to vs2008 and allowed me to find my program.py file and debug it.

hello = "Hello VSX!!!"
import System
import System.Diagnostics
print hello
print hello

The problem lies when i execute this file from the PythonEngine.  The code below is in c# and when executed prompts me to attach to C# program.cs not program.py .
            PythonEngine eng = new PythonEngine();
            eng.ExecuteFile(@"IronPython Studio\ConsoleApplication3\ConsoleApplication3\Program.py");

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get this to work.  I really love the idea of hosting ironpython in our application but we could definitely use the ability to get breakpoints.
