Description Marius Ungureanu 2013-10-21 09:17:23 UTC
We need a boolean to choose whether we want subclasses of an exception type to be included or not.

Fixed in master 4e6c494b306682cc6ed21dcca175aabd6463f947.
There is now an IncludeSubclasses property in ExceptionEventRequest which controls this. It defaults to true. Setting it to false will throw an exception if the debuggee is running an older runtime so it should be used like this:

if (vm.Version.AtLeast (2, 25))
   req.IncludeSubclasses = false;
