Expo Go hangs on debugger statement

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 47
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): iOS (simulator)

Since Expo 47, we have the new Debugger Tools window, which is a standalone window (instead of a Chrome tab). It seems that any debugger statement will let the app pause when hit, even if the Debugger Tools are not opened at the moment.

Anyone else having this?

You might say “the whole idea of debugger statements is to pause the execution flow when the statement is hit, so everything is by design”.

Not really. Before Expo 47, when a debugger statement was hit and the Developer Tools were closed, it was ignored, as it is in production. It only worked if you had the Developer Tools opened. Now, it seems that the app has no knowledge of whether the Debugger Tools are opened or not.
