This is always the case when debugging in VS 2015 update 3 


Xamarin.Forms PCL
async method in a static VM
hover over a local var  
var a = 1;
var b = a;

Visual Studio 2015 update 3
Latest stable Xamarin.Forms release

This is using the debugger for UWP (which is not Xamarin). Moving to forms so they can forward to the correct team.

I'm working with the Visual Studio team to determine where this is happening and what we need to address it.
