I have been looking at the debug agent on my target platform and getting the
MonoDevelop debugger to connect. 

All was seeming to go well, I can attach, pause, run, hit break points but
then I noticed:

- None of the local vars are showing up. 
- Vars in the watch window are shown as "An object refererence is
- The yellow arrow that shows your position in the code when stepping is not

Can someone please point me in the right direction with respect to debugging
this, I don't fully understand the sequence of messaged from the debugger to
the agent in order to request this information.

With respect to the local vars I would guess something like:

- command set: CMD_SET_TYPE, command CMD_TYPE_GET_FIELDS to retrieve a list
of the fields in a object possibly followed by: 

With respect to the yellow arrow that should be pointing to the next line of
code, hm, erm, urm... 

Thank you for all and any assistance in advance :)
