Fast flash debugging for coldfire ?

I am using codewarrior 6.4 build 4 to develop an application for coldfire M52223.  The code size is too large for sram, so I must locate the program in flash and debug it there.
 
For each little code change, I must:
* compile and link
* open Tools | Flash Programmer dialog box
* erase flash
* program flash
* cycle power on target
* start debugger running
* hit F5 to proceed past initial breakpoint
 
With smaller programs, I can debug in ram and the debug cycle is reduced to this:
* compile and link
* hit F5 to start the debugger
 
Is there a faster way to debug in flash?  This lengthly debug cycle is killing my creativity!!!
