Debugger problem:

public void foo(int a, int b)
 int c = a + b;

If you debug and hover "a" or "b" inside the method (right side of assignment), you'll see the current value of a or b.
However if you hover "a" or "b" in the method's signature ("int a") it will show you that a is an integer but not the value.

hmmm, this works fine in MonoDevelop 2.8.8, so I suspect it must be a bug in the new resolver.

I think it has to do with the text editor resolve provider in the 2.9.2 alpha, there was one of the methods not implemented. 

I verify this working in the current version. When merging branches the debugger needs some adjustments, it still uses the old nrefactory + old infrastructure ...
