Description Gary____ 2012-05-27 13:21:28 UTC
When on break during debugging, if I go to another method and happen to hover over a variable, the "evaluating..." notice comes up in the popup, as to be expected as that part of the code isnt in the debuggers scope at present. However if I then go back to the method where execution is currently paused, i cant inspect variables for a good period of time (I presume its waiting for the other evaluation to timeout?) and also if I try to execute something in the immediate window it shows Evaluating.... with an increasing number of dots until it returns a result or times out and I need to run it again (often the latter). If I have been to another source window, and allowed it to try and evaluate something, the same happens, this might take longer, but I havn't thoroughly compared them.

This is problematic when you have been referring to other parts of the code to build / copy and paste the statement you wish to execute in the immediate window.
