in all seriousness, I just got done with tackling a similar debugging issue.

Sometimes the debugger just isn't enough. As another commenter pointed out, the algorithm doesn't usually make much sense to people once it's at the point where it breaks.

So you should write more code. I dumped intermediary LALR tables to CSV for example so i could visualize them. I also made symbols and grammar rules print out string representations of themselves to the debugger to help.

In the end, write MOAR CODE until the problem reveals itself.

Sometimes using graphviz can help, in extreme cases.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
