Change debug workspace to "None".
Start debugging using "Project/Debug project": the IDE switches to the workspace
It works as expected (i.e. the current workspace is not changed) when the
debugger is started using "Debug/Start"
This is with 3.3 Beta 6
It seems to be fixed in the Netbeans build 20020102.
Feel free to reopen this issue if you are still able to reproduce it.
Verified in Netbeans build 20020102 on W2K with JDK1.3.1.
Resolved for 3.3.x or earlier, no new info since then -> closing.
