Break-in request hangs indefinitely
If you encounter problems debugging and VisualGDB states that
the break-in request is taking too long, you may be affected by

VisualGDB requests GDB to stop shortly after resuming execution.
You can work around this bug by increasing the minimal delay
between resuming a GDB session and requesting a break-in. The

Initially try setting the value to 300 milliseconds and if that does not help, increase it to 500 and then 1000.
