Since we're bitching about everything anyway, how about:

*) No conditional breakpoints
*) No watch expressions

ocamldebug works very well for debugging unexpected exceptions in my 
code, but when I wanted to trace the behavior of a specific function 
running on specific data, it was very painful to get to the right place.

1) set breakpoint
2) run
3) p variable
4) if not there yet, goto 2

yuck.  Am I missing something?  What do other people do?  Besides adding 
a conditional to their program to give them a place to set a breakpoint.
