Description dextml 2010-03-21 02:05:23 UTC
Java Debugger's working state can be broken when some unexpected VM crashes occur.
When such crash occurs, Netbeans IDE is still partially working under "debugging mode" while the target program has already exited. Unless restart Netbeans, the broken state cannot be easily undone.

write a simple java app; tune the the VM flag to some unacceptable level, like -Xmx4096m; hit "Debug Main Project" or something similar; then, watch the outcome.

Restart Netbeans.

Tested on 6.8, 6.7, 6.5

I can occasionally reproduce this. It looks like a threading issue.

Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201004020200* on (upload may still be in progress)
