Usability issue: Debug window minimizes while stepping

Hi,

I have a fairly large Java webapp project (17 modules) that has a usabilility issue -- when debugging, the Debug window minimizes while stepping.

To reproduce:
- I display debug window
- I cause breakpoint to be hit
- I step over F8
- Debug window minimizes and I can't see variables, watches etc
- I re-display debug window
- I step over F8
- Debug window minimizes and I can't see variables, watches etc

:(

I have tried smaller projects and unfortunately I don't have this issue in smaller projects.


Can someone enlighten me if there are specific debug settings to each project (and where I can remove them!)?  Or where this setting maybe kept in either project settings or under config folder?

I'm using:
- Win XP Pro
- IDEA jdk
- IntelliJ 9.0.4

Thanks!

Please check small square icons in top right corner of debug window and ensure it is docked.
If it won't help, please attach a screenshot.
