OK, it would seem that good advice (at least at the moment) is "you probably 
don't want to use the debugger under Windows".  I'm going to drop my current 
efforts and resume them under Linux later.  I've built an environment to do 
some testing of Uwe Seimet's SCSI driver support for Hatari under Linux, so 
after I've finished the testing, I can use that.
