[eclipse-dev] Debug note for build 20011206


The following behavior was brought to our attention while testing build 20011206. The problem is not critical.

Stepping out of main produces "VMDisconnected" dialog (http://dev.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=6659).

On Linux, when a user steps out of a "main" method, the VM throws a disconnect
exception. This does not happen on other platforms. The result is that an error
dialog appears describing the "VMDisconnect" exception, but there are no bad
side effects (the debug target then appears terminated, as expected).

Unsure of good fix, as this is a special case of "if stepping out of main, and
on Linux, ignore disconnect exception".

Problem occurred on IBM 1.3.0 VM cx130-20010502.
