FAQ
The attached simple update adds a debugger option
"break_on_warn" which causes the debugger to stop before executing the
next statement after a warning is issued. Usually, perl
"warnings" are indications of severe program errors (i.e., an
uninitialized variable error could be a mis-constructed hash key). With
this option the debugger stops and you can display veriables, etc., to
figure out what caused the warning.

Please consider adding this to the next release.

    There was no attachment with your mail. I don't know whether the problem
    was at your end or ours, but anyway, please resend with your patch pasted
    into the body of the mail. Thanks.
