Debugging fails to update watches

Hey everyone

Sometimes when debugging a program using PyCharm the watches I've set don't update automatically. They still remain set in the watches view but their value is shown as [...]. When I edit the watch and just press enter, they are evaluated by the debugger and their value is shown.

Is this a known issue (couldn't find any related tickets) or could this be a resource issue where PyCharm decides not to update all watches?

Kind regards

I still have the same problem in 2017 (Windows 10, Python 3.6, PyCharm 2017.1.1).

On the first breakpoint the watches are not evaluated. Once the debugger reaches the second breakpoint, the watches are evaluated.

Any ideas?
