id variables values not shown when debugging

when a variable is a type of id, it is impossible to see any info about it in the debugger. Is there a way to see which class it actually is? "po aValue" shows correctly the actual value so why not the "Watches" pane?

Do you exprience this problem all the time or just in some specific cases?
The fact is that it is not always safe to get the description of objects in the debugger. LLDB and AppCode try to do it only if program won't hang.
Please create an issue: for this case with some sample project or just specific info so we could reproduce it. Please describe the platform of debuggee, AppCode build number and Xcode version. Is your project ARC or pre-ARC?

Thank you!
