4.5.4 debugger hot swapping buggy

seems like hot debug hot swapping behaves worse with 4.5.4. At least I'm not aware of what else I could have changed to affect this, besides installing 4.54.
Twice it claimed "reloaded 688 classes" when only two chars in a System.out.println were changed. ( 688 were probably almost ALL classes of the little project I had opened).

also regularly vm crashes while hot swapping.

both things I did not experience with 4.5.3

Also, maybe 4.5.4 in general consumes more memory than before - but I'm not sure about that.

Nice weekend,

Hotswap reloads all clasess whose timestamp was changed since the debug session was started. If you recompiled all these 688 files,
the behaviour was correct.

no, I sure did not recompile 688 files ;)
but the behaviour never occured again.
I shouted too early - sorry!

I guess I should only report problems that occur
at least on 2 different days...
