Trouble with rpdb2 and winpdb debuggers in embedded Python script

Having some trouble getting rpdb2 and winpdb running properly with
Python embedded in a C++ project.

Our implementation has a number of C++ classes associated with Python

I am able to attach to the embedded script with the debugger and the
program freezes and waits.  However, when I step, next or go with the
debugger, it instantly gives control back to C++ and doesn't step nicely
through the python.

Similarly, if I set a breakpoint, the program pauses momentarily but
then doesn't break properly in the debugger.

Just wondering if anyone had encountered anything similar, or had an
idea what we are doing wrong.
