    Flex Builder - debugger terminating

    ethr
      Im running a licensed version of the Flex Builder 3 app on WinXP Pro. I have a project with several modules and actionscript. When I click the "debug" button on the toolbar my application starts normally but the 'debug' window says 'terminated' almost immediately. The app continues to run fine in the browser window but (obviously) the debugger is of no use now.

      If I try several times I can get a working debug session - lets say 1 in 5.

      I just came across the 'error log' and it shows that the app (Eclipse?) is having some problems. I won't post the whole stack trace but it's interesting to note that it is a repeated message occurring at intervals of a few hundred mSec. Here are the first few lines:

      !ENTRY org.eclipse.ui 4 0 2008-10-10 06:08:11.367
      !MESSAGE Unhandled event loop exception
      !STACK 0
      java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Argument not valid
