I'm not sure about this specific problem, but it is generally
the case that a broken window can be difficult or impossible
to recover from. The problem arises when displaying the debugger
window causes the broken window to hit the bug. This opens
another debugger which again tickles the broken window which
opens another debugger and so on...
I've sometimes thought that the solution to this problem might
be to open a debugger in a brand new project, empty of all windows.
Of course, if there were a bug in the project creation or switching
code, you could get into the same difficulty, but I think the
probability of that happening is lower...
