There is no real chance for the ruby debugger. But you can try the
debugger in arachno ruby (http://www.ruby-ide.com). This is
implemented by patching the core interpreter and on heavy ruby
intensive tasks is upto 10x faster.

Arachno has two modes, a "quick debugger mode" where only the toplevel
stack frame (with the local variables) are shown, this mode gives you
the 10x performance increase and a slower mode which is about 5x
faster.
