VS freeze when using "Execute File in Python Interactive"

Jul 12, 2011 at 1:18 PM


I've a problem with RC1 I hadn't before: Visual Studio freezes for about 5 seconds each time I launch the "Execute File in Python Interactive" command, and then the interpreter windows prints:

Restarting Python interpreter...

 I'm using Python 2.6 and the Python interpreter. Any ideas?

"Restarting Python interpreter..." is the designed behavior (actually, it used to restart the interpreter but NOT print a message).  The freeze is not intentional, and I will try to find a repro here so we can figure out what's going on. Thanks for the bug report.

I investigated and found the place where the delay is happening; I opened a bug and we will look at fixing it.
