Can't Set Value in Debugger

It appears that "Set Value" while debugging doesn't work in 5.0. The popup menu option is there and selecting it does cause the edit box to be shown. However, none of the changes are actually reflected in the debugger.

Seems to work for me, I remember I always got tripped with HAVING to
include the quotes on string values I set. i.e. "foo" instead of typing
foo.

I just did a clean install with no added plugins and created the simplest possible test and I still can't set values in the debugger.

I've figured out what is going on. Apparently, you need to hit the key in order for the value change to occur. Unfortunately, the VIM plugin turns nearly every edit box into a VI editor and changes the default behavior of the key to add new lines in the "Set Value" edit box; this is true even if the VIM editor is disabled. So, it then becomes impossible to make a value change. Initially, when I did the clean install and I tested the "Set Value" functionality, I wasn't hitting the ]]> key to confirm the change because I didn't know that it was necessary.

I should also add that I was thrown off intitially because in 4.5, you don't need to hit the ]]> key in order to confirm the value change. If you merely click somewhere else, the value is changed the value of the edit box. So, I didn't have this problem in 4.5.
