I am of course talking about the F8 'Russian Roulette'. You press F8 to
step over a statement in the debugger, and then you keep your fingers

I don't know if it's due to a change to the JVM or a change in IDEA, but
I do know it didn't used to be like this, and I can't see that such a
regression would be in the JVM would it? Does anyone else regularly run
into this too? Any tips for avoiding it?
When it first happened many moons ago I thought it was just an EAP issue
and that it would be ironed out, but I still get it this far down the
line, so I'm assuming it must be more complicated.
