That's correct, i.e. you need to change to package you wish to debug and 
then invoke "debug <foo>" on the word you wish to step through.

Note that one thing I have found with the debugger is that you may need 
to manually add breakpoints for methods called during package opening 
using the above method, rather than being able to use "U" and "D" 

AFAICT this is because the debugger needs to locate the start and end of 
a word in the wordlist, and if the package open fails then the new 
wordlist isn't set, and hence the word can't be located and added to the 
debug word list.
