Debugging and python don’t mix

Earlier this week I spent some time getting xpcshell to run on windows mobile and was excited to use my debugging tips from my last post. After dozens of attempts, I found that running python to launch processes (using osce.py) would not work when launched from Visual Studio debugger. So my debugging is limited to python output and sleep statements so I have time to read it.

Luckily launching other processes like fennec.exe or xpcshell.exe work great from the Visual Studio environment and I was able to get some progress on the reftests.
