Description René Ruppert 2014-07-15 04:46:30 UTC
If an Android app causes an exception I can properly "Continue" or "Break". However as soon as I do this after a breakpoint was hit, VS becomes unresponsive and can only be killed via the task manager.

Today, I am trying to reproduce this issue with:
VS 2013
Win 8

We are not able to reproduce this issue, VS is not gets hanged after a breakpoint was hit in Android application.

Could you please provide your builds information and logs?  

For logs goto Help in VS->Zip Xamarin Logs->save this and attach zip file. or 

from this location Users\AppData\Local\Xamarin\Log\12.0

As we've introduced several fixes/improvements around our debugger component, I'm marking the bug as Resolved Fixed.
Please feel free to reopen it if you can still reproduce the issue with current bits.
