Description Tomas Pavek 2010-07-26 17:31:23 UTC
Would it be possible to have exc. breakpoints not stop again and again in all finally blocks around the code where the exception happened?

It's an often use case for me that when an assertion or exception breakpoint is hit, I want to continue to try again (e.g. after a fix, or just as it is), but then the IDE stops again and again on dozen unrelated places in finally blocks where the exception is re-thrown.

This assumes that it is somewhat possible to recognize re-throwing in finally block from the original exception occurrence.
