What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.
Placing breakpoints in the debugger and trying to step after the breakpoint is hit causes the game to crash. More specifically after hitting step, the game jumps to "ExternalInterruptHandler" (name from function maps), then crashes after running through it. This makes debugging Brawl pretty much impossible in Dolphin 5.0. This is a huge issue for me in particular as a Dev for Brawl Minus since we use Dolphin as an integral part of our development process.
The ExternalInterruptHandler function is located at 801dd644 in Dolphin 5.0-321, in the current version however it seems that it's located at 0x500. Pressing play after it steps into this function almost alwyas immediatly crashes the game (unknown opcode at 0)
In an almost 1 year old duplicate issue, Phire mentioned It's PR 3800 that caused the problem.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
Placing breakpoints in Brawl and stepping after the breakpoint is hit.

I've attached a detailed Function map i created myself from sifting through the raw maps on the Korean Brawl disc and ported to NTSC that can be loaded into Dolphin.
