hey folks,

i run tomcat 4.1.x from eclipse ide and debug my webapps.
while debugging some code today i've got an outofmemory exception , which
actually killed the eclipse. this was not the first time i've debugged the same code and there were no problems earlier. so, it seams to me like some kind of eclipse bug.
but the real problem is that since that exception the debugger stopped to work. it doesn't stop at the breakpoints, either at the old ones and the new breakpoints i set.

i didn't find any info on this on the

thanks in advance.

the debugger doesn't work with the classes running without tomcat too...
