OIC I have had this problem too! When I am in the debugger, if code execution ends in any way by stepping, my IDE will lock. This is on Mac OS X, and I'm not sure that it happens every time, but it has happened enough in the past that I am very careful to either cancel code execution or else take the blue pi... erm click the green triangle.
