Using 21.7 solves the problem. Thanks.

Can you try with a more recent eric version? Your installation is of January 2020 
and is one and a half years old. Please try 21.7, which is the latest release.

Also, pdb works on the command line.

With which Python version does this happen? I just tested your script (thanks for 
it) with Python 3.7.3 and the debugger stops on every breakpoint I set.

Please provide the eric version as well as this could make a difference.

OK here is simpler script which shows the problem. Set break points in line 4 and line 8. Script doesn't stop at line 4 but does stop at line 8. It is something to do with the multi-line expression.

Interestingly if you also put a breakpoint at line 2, then the program stops at line 2 (twice) then line 4 and then line 5.

Please provide a script showing the observed behavior but not needing the 
installation of non-standard packages.

Whether a script being debugged stops at a breakpoint seems arbitrary.

For example with the attached script, if I run with Start->Debug Script, it will stop at the first line, I can single step OK. I can then set breakpoints at line 5 and 32. It will stop OK at line 5 but not at line 32.
