When we execute the following code in VASt 8.0 our system has a "lockup":
Transcript show: 'Hello world!'.
We can get out of the lockup by a user break. But this is still very inconvenient when debugging. Is there a solution for this problem?

I tried it and had no problem. This is on VA 8.0.0's virgin abt.icx, and also my usual development image, on Windows.

It locks up for me on Windows with 7.5.2 and 8.0.2, but only when stepping through to the Transcript show. That doesn't surprise me greatly, since you're now trying to do something in a different process (the UI process). The way to get around that would be to dispatch the Transcript show to the UI process, for example, by wrapping it in an abtDefer:
- Code: Select all
[Transcript show: 'Hello world!'] abtDefer.
