           Summary: when paused in the debugger, no web pages will load in
                    other tabs
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Web Inspector
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: pmuellr at yahoo.com

If you've paused in the debugger by hitting a breakpoint, and perhaps stepping
through some code, but are in any case "paused", sessions in other tabs of the
window you are debugging are also paused, to some extent.

The most noticeable effect is that traversing links, or entering locations in
the location bar appear to "hang".  If you go to the debug window and get the
debugger into a "running" state instead of "paused", the actions requested on
the other tab windows will complete.

I don't know how many times this has hit me, thinking my network connection
must be dead.  

One of the following should actually happen:

- fix the problem so the other tab windows aren't paused
- if the problem can't be fixed, then a (highly) visible indicator should be
provided on the confusingly "paused" windows, mentioning the fact that the
windows are paused because the debugger is paused.  Presumably with a link that
will take you directly to the paused debug window so you can "fix" the problem
yourself (press "Go").

I haven't tried to see if pages in other windows are paused, and what the
affects of having multiple debug windows open are, but these should be
investigated as well.
