Ok, thanks for the clarification.
A couple more questions, if you remember:

1) How do you prevent the debugger from debugging itself (or you don't) ?
2)  How do you coroutine.yield to the correct coroutine.resume (the
one inside the loop) ? Your first coroutine.resume is outside the
"loop", when you set the line hook. How come the next coroutine.yield
doesn't get you back here (hence exiting the program) ?

Thanks again,
