[Ironruby-core] Debugging ruby code in a host

When you create the ScriptRuntimeSetup, do this:

setup.Debug = true;

That will tell the DLR to generate debuggable code.

With my IronRubyMVC implementation I'm far enough to figure out that I need to be able to put breakpoints in my ruby code :)
Now the question is how, because I think I tried all of the ways that are described in the wiki but had no success. I have a debug version of IronRuby and I'm using it in a C# ASP.NET<http://ASP.NET> MVC project with the System.Web.Mvc.IronRuby dll as a reference. The web application hosts the scriptruntime etc. Now what do I need to do to make visual studio break on the breakpoint I define?

In merging the latest git pushes into the linux branch I've seen a pdb generator does that mean I can actually get to more meaningful stack traces etc. again the question how springs to mind? :)
