the process I use in this case is rather than resort to the debugger, I
expand the test that fails with more assertions, more interim steps and the
like. The advantage of this tactic is that you are expanding the test suite
forever, rather than debugging for once.

But if I do need to debug, I set ANT_OPTS up or run ant from the IDE (very,
very rare this, I think I've done it twice)
