Anyone had success getting ruby-debug to work with Locomotive? I've got the ruby-debug gem installed, and require 'ruby-debug' in my config file, but when I try to call the debugger from within a rails method, the app just blows right by it and nothing appears in the console. Any help with this would be appreciated.

If Locomotive is still using lighttpd, it won't work. The best way to do it AFAIK is just: rdebug script/server or if you have the debugger started in your code, just use: script/server

Locomotive now runs on Mongrel, so this shouldn't be a problem. Footnotes looks cool, but I need to be able to stop execution at a particular point and examine/change variables. I need a...uh...breakpointer. Anyone who knows how to get ruby-debug working w/ Locomotive, please speak up! I'm getting desperate here.

Why is locomotive essential? Can't you start your app under webrick or mongrel for debugging? If you do that, it's straightforward: Just require 'ruby-debug' and just before where you want to stop, call the debugger method.
