When you're editing and debugging files remotely with mod_perl or similar, it can be handy to tell Komodo to look for a copy of a source file on the local disk first, before downloading a copy from the server.  Fortunately, the solution is easy at hand.  It's a few menus deep, though.

If you go to the Debugger preferences pane, there is a checkbox near the bottom marked "Try to find files on the local system when remote debugging".  Select the corresponding checkbox, and hit "Okay".

Komodo should now check for a local copy before grabbing another one from the server.
