I do have it installed, but I doubt you need it.

Just briefly, how I did the debugging, was this:
Put the contents from the script in the .workflow file into a .tcsh file, insert
as the first line in the script, make it executable
chmod 755 test.tcsh
and then run it with a PDF as parameter
./test.tcsh "my pdf file.pdf"
This will give you more useful output than through Automator.

This is getting pretty detailed, maybe we should to continue in direct msging?
