Description

Powershell ISE locks out ALL scripts while one script is being debugged. This makes life unfun, but has an easy workaround. Opening a second ISE allows the other script to be debugged, but this would mean that I would need to open an ISE for every script I am working on (I can easily find myself working on three scripts). I base my opinion on this being a bug because I use VBSEdit, PowerGUI, and Visual Studio and none of them exhibit this behavior (although the only pertinent one should be VS). I also hear that Sapien does not exhibit this behavior. Given all that I would think that this shouldn't be a by design (I would find it odd if someone specically designed the program to lock out other scripts, but that is just my .02).

Open an ISE for every script. Not pretty, but does the trick.
