I have two suggestions here.

1. Use Firefox and install the Firebug extension.

1.1 With Firebug you can see in the Network panel, all the HTTP
transactions that happen when you do some action in phpMyAdmin;
therefore you'll see which initial PHP script is called, with the

1.2 If you are working in the JavaScript part of phpMyAdmin, you can use
the Firebug script debugger to see what's happenning.

2. Use a PHP IDE like NetBeans [0] with PHP and Xdebug support, which
will show you the flow of execution at the PHP level.
