Setting this as major as the only workaround is to stop my work and restart XS

I haven't been able to reproduce this. Does this still happen (4.1.7?) and if so, can you provide any steps?
Comment 2 Marek Safar 2013-07-29 07:49:25 UTC
I can still reproduce it with master as of today. One way to reproduce it is to get the popup dialog before XS asks for file reload.
Comment 3 Jeffrey Stedfast 2013-08-05 17:56:54 UTC
Mike? Lluis? Any ideas?
Comment 5 Peter Hultqvist 2013-12-18 08:28:08 UTC
In my experience those exceptions popups has almost never been responding to mouse clicks.

Right now it happened for me on XS 4.2.2(build 2) on windows.

Update, I left XS with the unresponsive popup while searching for this bug and now it is responding.

Marek: is this only an issue on specific platforms?

I still cannot reproduce this.
Comment 7 Marek Safar 2014-01-09 16:14:00 UTC
I am running this on Mac, so it looks like it's not
Comment 8 Jeffrey Stedfast 2014-01-09 16:35:57 UTC
ok, I'm on Mac as well... :-\
Comment 9 Lluis Sanchez 2014-03-04 02:43:46 UTC
Marek, can you provide specific steps for reproducing this issue?
Comment 10 Marek Safar 2014-03-04 03:23:06 UTC
I still get it with master but don't have exact steps how to reproduce it yet.
Comment 11 Lluis Sanchez 2014-03-04 11:38:26 UTC
Marek, can you attach the IDE log?

Getting the same bug - was going to file a new one until I saw this.

Mac OSX 10.9.3, Xamarin Studio 4.2.5.

I can't believe that the "close" box doesn't get rid of it.... if anything, it makes it propagate.

In the most recent instance, I had set a NavigationTableView.BackgroundColor to "null", [meant to be the BackgroundView, slip of the typo]. Fix the error, can't get of the darned Exception dialog box.
Comment 14 Phil Ryan 2014-05-19 08:09:14 UTC
And I just checked: closing and re-opening the solution doesn't get rid of it (though it does reduce the size just down to the lightning-bolt, that is, unless you click on the lightning-bolt, in which case it goes back up to normal size of about 2 inches wide by 1 inch tall, which obstructs a large fraction of the screen and is annoying as hell).
Comment 15 Marek Safar 2014-06-27 04:55:54 UTC
I have finally managed to reproduce this highly annoying bug which requires XS restart.

using System;

class X
	public static void Main ()
		throw new ApplicationException ();



1. wait for exception popup
2. go to line after throw
3. delete the line, so the popup has to move.
4. stop debugger

and the popup is still there.

Marek tnx for finding steps to reproduce.
Fix is available in version on master branch.

Now exception pop up gets removed on stopping the debugger.
