How do I use Code Fragment Mode when debugging a Flex app?

No matter what I type in Code Fragment Mode in the expression evaluator in Flex, all I get is the first line evaluated, and the rest parrotted back to me.  For example, if I enter this:

var s : String = "";
for (var i : int = 0; i < 10; i++)
{
  s += "a";
}

What I'll get in my result is this:

"";
for (var i : int = 0; i < 10; i++)
{
  s += "a";
}

I've read the other threads here that mention CFM, and tried things like putting "s=s" at the end of my fragment, but nothing seems to work.  What am I doing wrong?

I'm afraid underlying debugger inmplementation (fdb tool from the Flex SDK) doesn't support code fragment mode.

I'll remove 'Code Fragment Mode' from the Flex Evaluate Expression dialog.

That would certainly explain it.  Too bad - that looked like a very useful feature!  But I understand that you can only use what the Flex SDK provides you.
