Question about interrupts while being stopped in the debugger

I found this a bit odd a few minutes ago, I stopped my robot in the debugger for awhile to check on some variable values. I look up, and notice that the thing is still running!

 

For those who don't know, my "robot" is the AirDragon, a beginner's custom quadrotor craft that uses a 9S12 as its MCU (keep thinking that its overkill as the days go by).

 

I have a routine that is interrupt driven, for the curious this routine carries out the attitude (pitch and role) control procedure.

 

 

This brings me to my question:

 

When stopped in the debugger, does the MCU still service and run through the interrupts (provided that it isn't stopped in an interrupt to begin with)?
