[Seaside] exceptions while debugging - frozen UI

I cannot reproduce that. I get an internal error displayed in the web browser.

The problem is that you are trying to request another page in the same
session, while you have the stepping debugger open. Every session has
a mutex that prevents the handling of multiple requests though. Since
the debugger runs in the GUI thread this locks up Squeak.

If I press Ctrl+. and close the old debugger, I get a new one on the
message not understood zork. So everything seems normal here.

Generally you should avoid stepping over code that causes a response
to be sent out to the browser, like the error with the #zork, or when
doing a #call: or #answer:. In the current implementation this cannot
possibly work within a single debugger, as there are many different
processes involved (every request gets a new process).
