What about the "new" winpdb debugger.
It looks really nice.


create a shortcut like:
C:\Python24\python.exe C:\Python24\Lib\site-packages\winpdb.py -t

the -t switch is important, otherwise it starts in an
encrypted mode".

I have patched winpdb.py (about Line420):

AC_CHAR = "\t"
AC_EXIT = "Alt-X"
AC_GO = "F5"
AC_NEXT = "F10"
AC_STEP = "F11"
AC_GOTO = "Ctrl+F10"
AC_RETURN = "Shift+F11"

to accomodate the shortcuts to VC Debugger.
