Debug a somethnig going weird in someone elses nodeapi presave

This could be prettier. Do not judge. Especially could be prettier using an IDE.

* Invoke a hook_nodeapi() operation in all modules.
* @param &$node
*   A node object.
* @param $op
*   A string containing the name of the nodeapi operation.
* @param $a3, $a4
*   Arguments to pass on to the hook, after the $node and $op arguments.
* @return
*   The returned value of the invoked hooks.
function node_invoke_nodeapi(&$node, $op, $a3 = NULL, $a4 = NULL) {
  $return = array();
  foreach (module_implements('nodeapi') as $name) {
if ($op == 'presave') {
// @debug
$v = (array)$node;
    $function = $name .'_nodeapi';
if ($op == 'presave') drupal_set_message('blame: ' . $name);   
    $result = $function($node, $op, $a3, $a4);
    if (isset($result) && is_array($result)) {
      $return = array_merge($return, $result);
    else if (isset($result)) {
      $return[] = $result;
if ($op == 'presave') {
// @debug
$v = (array)$node;
  return $return;

Do this if things are all right and good at the start of a node_save and are not after nodeapi presave is called.
Where the value you are interested in stops showing up, that's the module that is sabotaging you.
