Summary0001248: Fails to show variables while paused at breakpoint
DescriptionUsing PHPStorm 10.0.3 and Chromium

Debugging in PHPStorm successfully catches the breakpoints in the code, but no variables are displayed in the console. Instead, 'collecting information' is displayed with the occasional 'flicker' of the variables appearing for a fraction of a second.

This is only happening on PHP7.0.2. All fine with PHP5.6.15, PHP7.0.1.

Ive also tried using RC2 and the same problem exists.
Steps To ReproducePHP Remote Debug configuration
set breakpoint
start debug session
refresh browser
Additional Informationxdebug php.ini config:

TagsNo tags attached.
Operating SystemUbuntu 15.10
PHP Version7.0.0-7.0.4

What's in your xdebug.log file? (You can make one with xdebug.remote_log=/tmp/xdebug.log in php.ini)

I thought it better to upload the whole log file. This a fresh file with just one break point stop in it.

edit: oddly I've just recompiled php7.0.0 as a workaround and it's doing the same thing. I've tried rolling myself back to xdebugRC2 and Im still getting the same problem.

Because of this Im wondering if I have some config issue as I know I had RC2 and 7.0.0 running very happily before.

after a twitter message from JetBrains they seem to think this is their bug. ive raised a ticket with them. will post the outcome.

Hiya, just an update. Ive been through some hoops with Jetbrains and can confirm that PHPstorm is working correctly so have suggested its an xdebug issue. Interestingly, during some tests, very simple code (1 liners), xdebug behaves as expected. However, when debugging my symfony2.8 app is when the crash occurs.

Ive attached an xdebug log of the latest failure.

I've just compiled RC4-dev and I no longer have the problem.

That's good to hear - thanks for checking. I'll likely release RC4 in the next few days. When that comes out, could you be so kind to try again and confirm it is indeed fixed?
