How do I debug into "curl-like" calls?

I have a problem where I can't debug into a "curl-like" call, such as "file_get_contents()"  I have a breakpoint on the file it's calling and the break point never gets hit.  I'm positive it's using this code.

could it be because the page that it is calling is not appearing in the address bar with the XDEBUG_SESSION_START=PhpStorm extension so its not starting a debug session?

if this is the case you could change the php.ini from


to start an xdebug session automatically for all files.  (or use the xdebug addon for firefox but i havent managed to get that working yet.)

xdebug.remote_autostart=1 is set in the .htaccess file, so that's not part of the equation.  But hopefully you're on to something and the JetBrains folks will know the problem or a work-around.
