Eclipse debugger is skipping instructions!

    I am debugging an app that tests an API I wrote. There is a section of code that simply reads a DB cursor like this:

    Cursor row = mDatabase.query("properties", null, where, null, null, null, null, null);
    if( row != null )
    if( row.moveToFirst() ) // A
    int n=row.getColumnIndexOrThrow("value");
    value = row.getString( n ); // B

    The debugger steps through line at a time until it gets to the line commented // A. The next line the debugger gets to is the line commented // B!!! It completely skips over the "int n =..." line. Even stranger, at that point the int n is not listed as being in scope at all. Basically, as soon as it executes any method on row the debugger skips.

    I also have to step twice over each clause in any conditional. So this: if( a==2 || b==4 ) would require four "step over" actions to get past it. Very strange.

    I re-installed the latest version of eclipse with the latest ADB and the latest emulator. It still happens. I emptied the bin directory before building so that its a completely clean build. This is running against Android 2.0, which is a requirement. I am on Windows 7 64 bit with a 32 bit installation of eclipse.

    Has anyone seen this strange debugger behavior? What should I try to do?
