VS for Mac has been getting stuck in a state where the Play/Stop button is constantly in a Stop mode where it shows the square.

This has happened about 6 or 7 times in the last day or so. I dont have specific steps to reproduce but other than just lots of debugging sessions. Only workaround is to kill VS for Mac and restart.

Screenshot attached of the IDE with no project open yet looks like we're debugging.

I've seen this happen as well, but unfortunately don't know how to get it to happen either.

If you can reproduce it again, can you please attach the IDE log?
Comment 3 Rob DeRosa 2017-09-04 21:34:23 UTC
Here are some logs from today where I noticed it getting stuck.
