Ethereal Breakpoints

I always figured the flood of messages was what locked-up LC when you debug
a resize event. I just fire it off at the command line and then debug the
resizestack code.

When I inadvertently do this and lock-up LC most (90%+) an "F5" or two or
three times gets things going again so you can save the stack. Most times LC
is just fine and you don't need to restart. Using F5 has worked for me since
V4.x on Win XP thru V8.x on Win 10.

I keep getting caught by this - setting a breakpoint in a handler which is
(indirectly) called from a resizeStack, and LC  gets completely frozen and
needs to be Force-quit.
