When target processor paused the debugger loses it's connection

I am trying to develop an application targeting an MCF51JM128 coldfire 1 microcontroller and am having problems with the debugger losing the connection to the target board when I pause the program to look at the registers' values.  I am using codewarrior 10.1 build ID: 110204 on a Ubuntu 11.04 system using a PE Cyclone PRO through Ethernet.  The disconnects only seem to happen when the debugger is paused, although it does not spend more than a handful of seconds in run mode.  I would use the USB connection, but am unable to get the USB drivers to compile.  Anyone have any ideas?
