c++.idde - Debugger hanging the system

reply "Dimitri Kaparis" <dkaparis universalstudyhelper.com> writes:
Hello,

Has anyone else experienced this problem where issuing a step command while
debugging would effectively hang your system, bringing everything to a
complete crawl? Even mouse pointer movement becomes sluggish and opening
Task Manager takes ages, while SCWMN32.EXE is near 100% CPU usage.
I've had this happen to me several times already under Windows XP
Professional. I have determined it happens at one particular spot in my
project, but it is quite large. Once I have some more time I will try
reproducing it in smaller, isolated example and post it here.

Regards,
Dimitri

Does the same thing happen when you debug under windebug as well?

If you mean windbg.exe from the Digital Mars distribution, it did pass on
the same code without problems, but I haven't used it much really.
