+1 to an easy way to install this on Ubuntu 10.04..  Also, it looks
like my major gripes with the Immediate window are still there..

- No declaration of variables:

> int x = 5;
EOF expected
> Button b = new Button()
EOF expected

- No calling of methods:

> a
> a.GetType()
Evaluation failed.
> a.ToString()
Evaluation failed.

(Note: Sorry, this only seems to be the case for variables on the
stack, maybe the debugger doesn't box?)

- If you change the value of a string in the Value Visualizer, you get
an unhandled exception. (You can change this in the Immediate window)

- Adding variables to the watch window shows their value according to
the program execution.  If they're modified under the debugger, the
values are not reflected.  If you change the values in the watch
window, the immediate window will show the new value but the hover
over variable watcher shows the old value.  If you change the hover
over value, the hover over value will show the new value but nothing
else will.  It's like everything lives in its own universe.  The
debugger needs to write directly to the program heap.

- I still can't drag variables onto the watch window.  At least on the
Mac.  Further more, if I try, the text editor gets "stuck" in drag


- Right click context menu on Immediate window should have a Clear button.
