Video of the issue
Placing a breakpoint in a static constructor and stepping in or over instead steps out.
Ermau has identified this bug as 'Debilitating'. High priority for investigation.
This is still an issue in the latest 1.8 release. Most of the debugging issues were fixed. We get exactly the same behaviour in Xamarin Studio, so its probably related to the Soft Debugger.
This happens too in XS, can you help Dean figure out what's wrong here?
Fixed in mono master 1139f71dc206480111d35658a2fb4bace60bc05c.
