Variable Watcher

Well, I have a command in a loop that sends the elements of an array  
to be stored in a database. I put a breakpoint on the line with the  
command, and watch the value of the array. I know it's changing,  
because if I re-click the array's name in the upper panel of the  
Watcher, it updates to the expected value. But if I don't do that,  
the value is not "live" updated in the lower panel.
