I haven't able to reproduce the bug with cc-eval-when-compile,
just eval-and-compile. But the thing that is supposed to make Edebug
wrap a form in edebug-enter is the use of def-form or def-body in the
Edebug spec. It works for eval-when-compile which has the Edebug spec
(&rest def-form). The body of eval-and-compile doesn't get wrapped
because its Edebug spec is t, so the bug happens there.

cc-eval-when-compile has the same Edebug spec as eval-when-compile, so
its body should get wrapped by edebug-enter. If that's not happening in
your Emacs, it's a bug in Edebug which is different from the
eval-and-compile Edebug spec bug.
