Exactly.

Too bad.  I do get a debugger all the time, even if Emacs is completely
idle.  Maybe your Emacs is even too busy to get the debugger up.

AFAIK the "QUIT" message you get doesn't mean that the debugger has
quit.  Sending usr2 causes the `debug-on-quit' flag to be set and
additionally causes a quit signal.  In combination, this causes the
debugger to be entered.
