But that's exactly what it does. You have problems because you know
too much; with the new scheme a user doesn't even have to know that
there is a way to configure the debugger, it will just work. The
change only bites people who knew how it worked before and adapted
their registry; so now you need to return your registry to the default
state to make things work.
