The Locals pane is currently sorted on the local variable name and in cases where there are enough variables shown to make the pane scroll, it happens that the variable you're interested in is not visible and has to be scrolled into view. Unfortunately, the scrolling has to be repeated on every debugger step since the locals pane is then scrolled to the top. It would be really nice if the pane had an option to sort the variables on the last-changed status. That way the most interesting variables would be at the top of the window at all times.
