No, that has nothing to do with Shout. Shout has its own parser, and it 
was last modified in April.

Also, you have to click on Through to be able to debug #method:context:. 
Over will just execute that block without the debugger entering it.

Btw, I remember running into an error related to LargeInteger parsing, but 
a updating my image fixed it. What's the version of Kernel in your image?
