Debugger - fails to "continue" with breakpoint set

I'm pretty new to Python, but I am really enjoying it as an alternative
to Perl and PHP.
When I run the debugger [import pdb; pdb.set_trace()] and then do next
and step, and evaluate variables, etc, when I hit 'c' for continue, we
go to the end, just fine.
As soon as I set a breakpoint down the line, [b <line number>] the
behavior of 'c' changes. Instead of continuing until the breakpoint, or
until the end, if the breakpoint is hidden by a conditional, the
debugger starts to treat 'c' as a step (or a next, I'm not sure which.)
This behavior is repeatable and consistent.
I see this in python 2.6.4 on Ubuntu 9.10 and also in 2.5.2 on Ubuntu
8.04 (Hardy), both using the installed packages.
I must be missing something. Assistance will be welcome.
