I have an issue with latest beta (1.7.9). I was using alpha 1.7.8 previously.

Since beta, while debugging on device, while halted on a breakpoint, after a small amount of time the hardware device stops the debugger. VS2012 then freezes. The only way to get it back is to shutdown its process.

log when this happens:

We have improved several code paths where the Debugger would fail to detach properly. 

Please reopen if you see this happening again.
