Description René Ruppert 2014-03-05 09:31:25 UTC
I'm debugging an async method by stepping over. If I hit a line that uses "await", the debugger jumps to the end of the method I'm currently in. If I continue with stepping over, I will follow the code that is the continuation of the task I'm awaiting.
Is that by design? I expected to continue debugging in the next line after the "await", just as if the code was synchronous.

If I put a breakpoint into the next line and let the code run, it will eventually hit the breakpoint, so this works.

This is by design.
