Run debug mode without gui

Hello everybody.
I am trying to run the matlab debugger without a gui. I know all of the command line commands such as dbstop, dbcont, dbstep, etc, but I was wondering if it was possible to tell the debugger to not try to access the gui when it hits a breakpoint (ie don't try to open an editor window). The reason I ask this is because I am frequently using matlab without the desktop over ssh on a linux cluster and whenever I try to debug something it throws a ton of java exceptions at me about not being able to find the gui... This doesn't really affect the debugger, as all my current variables are still there and I can step/move around/do whatever I would normally do, but it is quite annoying and it makes it difficult to find the output to the cmd line that tells you what breakpoint you are at in the code.
Thanks for your help!

Hi Andrew,
You can open matlab with -nojvm flag that would have no GUI at all. you can use comands as dbstatus to know where are placed breakpoints and dbclear to remove the breakpoints.
