Why are you inclined to believe, that debugging a script belongs to the
debugger list? This list is "A discussion list for enthusiasts of
the Perl debugger", i.e. for people working on the debugger itself,
proposals towards improvements, potential bugs/fixes (although, mostly
better suited at p5p).

Could we see the code excerpts that matter?

Not yet, unfortunately.

See the explanation given above.
