I use FDB.  In the output of the failures there should either be
1) a SWF that timed out, or 2) a test name that failed.

For (1) I go find the SWF and run it in FDB and see if I can figure out why
it got stuck.

For (2) I look at the failing test and find the SWF it is linked into and
launch that SWF in FDB>  I try to get a breakpoint on the failing step in
FDB.  Most steps have a "doStep()" method that is a good place to start.

There is a way to launch the FB debugger, but I don't know it OTOH since I
don't use it.

Using the -failures option helps you get to the failing test
faster, but sometimes I comment out stuff so I don't have to skip past a lot
of breakpoints.

Remember, I'm working on validators, Peter is working on the apollo folder
and Carol is working on text-related components, so claim another folder and
cross your fingers.
