The reason for this is that Apache::ASP resets perl's idea of the
current line number and filename to make any errors reflect their true
location in the ASP scripts.  But the debugger doesn't seem to
like that.

Apache::Registry does this too, but if you take a look at Apache::DB
you'll notice that it sets $Apache::Registry::MarkLine = 0, which
suppresses that behavior when running under the debugger.

The quick fix is to remove the line numbering stuff.
The real fix is to make it configurable and maybe just honor the
$Apache::Registry::MarkLine value.
