iOS List and empty Android List

Since upgrading to my debug devices are no longer refreshing properly.

On opening my application if I have for example my iOS project selected initially then the device list correctly shows me the list of available iOS devices to debug with once connected to the Mac.

When I switch to my Android project in the debug target drop down then the device list never populates (switching back to the iOS project the list is as before).

Same happens in reverse. If I close my app and reopen it so the Android project is selected by default then the Android devices populate fine but switching to the iOS project results in the list of iOS devices never populating.

This did work in the previous version I had with no issue (sorry not sure what it was). Screen shot attached.

I'm moving this to general for visibility.

Hi Oliver,

I think this is a duplicate of the following bug:

There were some glitches working with the startUp project drop down, tackled with C8SR1.
Can you please confirm this is working fine now with the latest stable version?
If not, please feel free to reopen the bug.
