Debug problem with usb tap: very slow execution

I'm using usb tap with cw 6.4 build 6 to debug my 52233 project. The firmware is too large for ram, so it's been flashed.
When the source code is displayed in Mixed mode, the debugger single steps through the code very quickly. When I display only the C source code, however, the debugger pauses for several seconds for each and every C statement executed, even if it is a very simple statement that corresponds to only a few machine language instructions. And when I run "full speed" to a breakpoint (regardless of the source display mode), the debugger takes an extraordinarily long time to execute the code.
Please help! What could be the problem here?
