Toolwindows on OSX

For years now, every now and then, a tool window on OSX gets 'stuck'. This means that you can click the button (happens most often to me in the debug window), it is pressed and something gets focus, but no window pops up.

The workaround was to right click, set it to docked, then undock it and the window would now show up correctly when pressing the debug button.

However, in the last build, this has become unusable. The debug window almost never pops up for me, and to make it things much, MUCH worse, right clicking on the button doesnt work either anymore, so I cant dock it. Does this happen to anyone else, or am I just exceptionally unlucky?

Yes, I have seen this many times and not only on OSX. Very frustrating.
Now that the right click menu has disappeared, you have to use the
"Docked Mode" action in the Window menu to make the tool window show up
again.

Fixed in the next EAP build. Popups are back, undocked debugger
toolwindow pops up and gets focus on debugger session start.
