Description Imgen Tata 2012-09-06 07:24:17 UTC
Description of Problem:
MFA 4.2.5 on VS2012 RC + Win8 RP. When debugging, it takes quite a while to go into the debugging state and you can not use compound expression in Watch window like button.Text, it will become Text and will not evaluate. 

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Start VS2012 debugging for MFA project, setup a breakpoint, hit the breakpoint
2. Input a compound variable in the Watch window like button.Text

Actual Results:
The button.Text becomes just Text and will not evaluate next time the breakpoint is hit

Expected Results:
button.Text keeps being button.Text and should always evaluate correctly

How often does this happen? 

Additional Information:
I'm using the emulator for the debugging
