Summary 06269: DEBUGGER: Unable to use any valid cheats while using debug
Description cheat.xml files are being rejected and MAME either crashes without a message or gives a warning about incorrect rom regions on any game with a valid cheat.
Cheats work perfectly fine if you do not load debugger (-debug)

32-bit shows this for most attempts, then you are brought back to command prompt
d:\mameftp\admin\git>mame mappy -window -cheat -debug
mappy.xml(5): error parsing cheat expression "maincpu.pb@2030=06" (non-existent
memory space)


64-bit doesn't even show this - but will unceremoniously drop you to command prompt with no stack crawl or error message
Steps To Reproduce Attempt to start any game that has known working cheats with -cheat and -debug
EG: mame mappy -cheat -debug

If you run 64bit in gdb you'll see the same error. I suspect .
