When I click on the hint it sets a break point. 

There is no way of clicking on the hint any more.
Comment 3 David Strupl 2009-11-10 08:37:12 UTC
I will check this.
Comment 4 nleck 2009-11-29 21:06:15 UTC
Still reproducible in 6.8rc1. Makes hints useless.
Comment 5 David Strupl 2009-11-30 01:56:32 UTC
I have just tried in RC1. Makes one particular type of hint useless - only the one with empty statement (at least from my current testing). Did you see it with other types of hints as well?
Comment 6 David Strupl 2009-11-30 02:01:21 UTC
The empty statement hint behaves really strangely - it keeps vanishing after a while. Max, can you please check it?
Comment 7 nleck 2009-11-30 02:22:04 UTC
I didn't check more than the "empty statement" hint, it was just the quickest way to reproduce the problem. 

It was something that was only broken relatively recently.

This isn't fixed in 6.8 should it be ?
Comment 11 Max Sauer 2009-12-11 02:28:21 UTC
No, unfortunately not. This issue was not enough serious to rebuild RC. I'll make it part of patch released in early February (
