I compiled the latest  version from source [r128027] and then tried to 
debug the problem:

1) on the unit tests tree pane 'debug' context menu option appeared - 
that's great !

2) after clicking it stopped the debugger at 
ExternalTestRunner.cs:68  :
NUnitTestRunner GetRunner (string assemblyPath)
=>	TestPackage package = new TestPackage (assemblyPath);

 continue gives this output on the console:
ERROR [2009-02-25 21:48:21Z]: System.NullReferenceException: Object 
reference not set to an instance of an object
