Debug errors when debugging Node.js mocha tests

Whenever I try to debug a test my console will get flooded with the following error message several times:

ReferenceError: v8debug is not defined

Have anyone encountered this problem, and if so knows a fix?

@Elena_Pogorelova I had Ws 2016.2 and also updated to .3 and I'm still experiencing this problem. I saw there's a workaround for this, but according to you it should be fixed, as I'm using the most updated Ws version.

You must be using WebStorm 2016.1.2, not 2016.2. The latter hasn't been released yet. You can try the EAP build available at https://confluence.jetbrains.com/display/WI/WebStorm+EAP
