One of These Things Is Not Like the Other

One of the nice things about Java is that our debugging tools are a bit easier to use than the ones in the old version of Visual Studio that we're using. I saw that a data value was being set to some incorrect value. We had no idea of how it was happening, but I was pretty sure that only two methods could be setting it. So we set a breakpoint that would go off when this particular value was set using either of the two methods.

The breakpoint fired with the incorrect value heading for storage, we looked at the call stack, and the culprit was easily identified and neutralized. Yay, team!
