This may be because the variable inspector panes are trying to print out huge
amounts of information. If you've written a printString that can answer
really long strings this may be the case (the max for the printout of an
Array, for instance, is 110 items, or 5000 characters, whichever is shorter).
Also if you're using big blocks this could slow down the debugger since it now
will print out the decompilation of the blocks.
