Break Points Don't Work

I can set break points but they never stop.  My code is highly optimized.  In fact it can not run if I turn off optimization.


I quite simply cannot debug without the ability to at least halt my processor.


Everything is compiled right near as I can tell, and I am able to set breakpoints in non-critical code.  But its the critical stuff that's giving me the grief. 


In one case the processor died when I hit the break point.


Can anyone tell me what I can do about this?  (My experience with other compilers and highly optimized code was that the JTAG was at least able to stop the processor.  Although not always where I expected it.)
