the traceback in the upper right, sometimes it gets the function name wrong. Seems to be when you do some magic php where the name of the function comes from some variable or table, or something like that. It erroneously uses the parent function's filename, but ironically gets the line number correct. So the code it shows in the source pane points to a completely different file, in the middle of unrelated code, in one case a big comment block. It's OK if you can't get it in such situations, but PLEASE don't be misleading - just leave the filename blank or something for that level, and punt on the stuff you can't do accurately. Or use the parent function AND the parent line number. It wastes time when you chase down these ghosts.

Can you provide a reduced reproduction case for this? Attach a PHP file that demonstrates it here. Thanks.

hmmm... well I don't work at that place anymore, and I can't reproduce the environment.

It was while debugging code in Drupal 6. One thing that it does a lot is to call a function whose name was a character string, rather than the usual. For instance, in a drupal module, you can set a handler for 'hook_pre_adjust_index' by making a function named 'mymodulename_pre_adjust_index'. You don't have to register the callback or anything.

I suspected this was where it was fumbling; in a traceback of maybe twenty levels, there would be three or four levels where the function name was calculated rather than fixed. These places, the function name showed was a duplicate of the function name above, rather than the calculated function name that was actually called.

that's all i remember. Good luck on this, I really like the debugger and it's sorely needed for php! thanks!

Going to close this, but I suspect this is an issue with Xdebug. MacGDBp gets the function names from the backend debugger, and so it must have provided the wrong name.
