See my other post on this from earlier today:

Hopefully Monte can chime in with details on that.

Thank you for the clarification.  Since we haven't seen posts about LC's 
Oauth2 here and searches for both "oauth" and "oauth2" turn up no bug 
reports in the bug DB, it seems reasonable to assume it's working well.

I tend to keep third-party stuff to a minimum in deployments myself, 
esp. where source is not available. But the OAuth2 library is a part of 
the LC product, available in all editions and included in the Github 
repo for everyone to review.

I was replying to your comment.  What did you have in mind?

Thank you for confirming the breakpoint fixes in place now.

If you have a recipe or a bug ID number for the remaining issue I'd be 
happy to see what I can do to try to steward it through completion.

With many who had noted the earlier issues no longer seeing breakpoint 
crashes, the specific intersection of factors leading to any remaining 
ones may be difficult to pin down.  But like all crashers I've seen 
before, once we have a solid recipe the fix is usually quickly delivered.
