There *was* a syntax error, and it was silently ignored. I had semicolons
instead of commas in a hash construction. Can we make the classloader
louder on errors please?

The problem is that eval is not atomic. This:

   eval q{
      sub foo { print 42 }
      sub ugh { if 42 { 42 } } # syntax error!

Does print 42.

I still don't know why Jifty won't work correctly under the debugger.
