Description tbrunhoff 2017-08-22 02:15:10 UTC
When stopping at some breakpoints, presumably associated with the context, I get messages in popup windows like this:

command:"-var-evaluate-expression var39"; error, msg=Variable object not found

looking at the gdb log, this is probably related to this series of events"

448-var-show-attributes "var39"
472-var-delete var39
510-var-evaluate-expression var39

Please attach GDB log.

Also I have added new check box that allows to not pop up debugger error windows.
