We found the Rowley debugger to be just awful. It was buggy and
the PC repeatedly. The only recovery was a reboot.
Did you use the Rowley USB JTAG device? I've used a lot of USB JTAG
devices for various chip families, and the whole class of devices
to have "issues". I have to reconnect the USB cable way too many times
- life shouldn't be this bad.
I've used the Rowley CrossConnect JTAG device and it has never caused
the PC any problems. On some occasions, if there is a major problem on
the target then the CrossConnect can fail to recover from the error and
needs to be reconnected. Very rarely I had to restart the IDE as well.
I've never seen the PC lock up from it though and the worst that has
happened is that the IDE crashes itself.
