Description NukemBy 2015-11-26 16:39:40 UTC
I was trying to identify the root cause of the java.lang.StackOverflowError and set a breakpoint on that exception class. Exception was captured, but after that Netbeans completely hanged - does not react on any actions. The only way further - kill it.

It would be nice to have Netbeans being able to handle that case - I mean stay interactive.

Its pretty easy to reproduce this problems:

1. Create breakpoint of type Exception = java.lang.StackOverflowError

2. Run the test like this one
    public void testRecursive() {
    public static void testRecursive(boolean recurse) {
        if( recurse )
