bug in Debugger

While debugging, stepping with F10 (step over) frequently repeats certain
Having to press F10 many times to get past a particular line often leads to
accidentally skipping over the following line, which may be of interest ;)
There are some patterns I notice:
* Entering a function almost always requires 2-3 steps.
* Declaration of an array requires as many steps are there are elements in the
array (initialising?)
* Array assignments likewise.
* Lines with more complex expressions.
* Function calls often take multiple steps to pass.

The annoying workaround for array operations is to set a breakpoint on the next
line, F5, then un-set it.
Expect; F10 should always move to the next line.
I suspect this may be a difference between dwarf and pdb that cv2pdb doesn't
account for?
Note: I'm debugging 64it GDC binaries using the Visual Studio debugger (can't
use Mago)
