Description Petr Cyhelsky 2008-09-03 17:52:38 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 200809021401)
Java: 1.6.0_10-rc; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 11.0-b14
System: Windows Vista version 6.0 running on x86; Cp1250; cs_CZ (nb)

Steps to reproduce: have some java application -> place some breakpoint -> debug the project -> invoke Debug|Evaluate
expression -> write some valid object into the textfield(for example this) -> press evaluate button -> invoke popup menu
on the newly created element (this) in pane under the textfield -> invoke "create fixed watch" -> nothing happens
