How can I debug a third party intellij plugin?

I am using the cucumber groovy plugin for intellij 14

It is not behaving as it should, but I cannot see any way to pinpoint what the problem might be. The plugin is supposed to create groovy files based on values in a .feature file, it does not create the file like it is supposed to, nor does it log any error message as far as I can see.

Before I file a bug report with the plugin developer I would like to narrow in on what the problem might be.

I just setup a plugin environment that had me debugging the DBNavigator plugin in pretty short order.

However, I'm guessing that you might be better served checking the bugtracker at http://youtrack.jetbrains.com, since Cucumber for Groovy is a JetBrains supported plugin.
