[vbox-dev] VM-debugger status

I am wondering what the status of the VM-Debugger[1] is.

I am unable to make it work on a Linux host, regardless of the guest OS.
A quick search shows that people in the forums[2] and on trac[3] have
the same problem: The VM can only be paused and resumed, but no
breakpoints or stepping requests are respected.

Both the thread in the forum and the bug tracker have received no reply.

Has the VM-Debugger been deprecated?
Or should it still work in principle?
