As I recall you can still compile modules with debugging enabled in
asm_fast.gc (using the --trace option).  The debugger doesn't require
everything to be compiled in a debug grade.  The debug grade is there
so that you get events for the standard library predicates, but it's
not required.

I think the debug tests have expected outputs for when they are run in
a non-debug grade.  So it's possible the failures are legitimate, but
most probably the expected outputs are out of date.
