It's a trade-off, and I don't mind it. The editor needs to prevent 
changes to the script in order to display the variable values correctly 
at the point of error, and most of the time people do want to go 
directly to debug mode to see what's wrong. I suspect the older method 
of having to click "OK" or "Debug" was as annoying to some as the 
current behavior is to others.

Command-Y will take you out of debug mode, and that's what I usually use 
if I don't want to debug.
