Description PJ 2012-09-04 14:04:25 UTC

1. Create a new Android Application
2. Set a breakpoint on the button click delegate
3. Debug
4. When the breakpoint is hit, stop debugging (Debug->Stop Debugging)

Expected behavior:

User should be able to continue editing their project within a few seconds of hitting 'Stop Debugging'

Actual behavior:

Program hangs for at least 10s before returning to a useable state.

This seems to be fixed in MfA 4.2.6 - at least in Visual Studio 2010 I don't have this problem anymore.
Comment 3 PJ 2012-09-28 11:52:09 UTC
