Context: Siebel Tools Debugger

When debugging script, Siebel Tools stops at a specified breakpoints. When using 'Step Over' or 'Step In' to try to move through the code, Siebel Tools just flickers wildly for several seconds then fails to progress the code pointer. Sometime, pressing F8 / Step Over 5 or 6 times will progress to the next line but often this doesn't work either.

2. Open Server Script and choose eScript option
3. Select BusComp_PreGetFieldValue and enable pre-default code i.e.
function BusComp_PreGetFieldValue (FieldName, &FieldValue)
return (ContinueOperation);
4. Write below code in writerecord event:
function BusComp_WriteRecord ()
var BO : BusObject = TheApplication().GetBusObject("Account");
var BC : BusComp = BO.GetBusComp("Account");
var WshShell = COMCreateObject("WScript.Shell");
5. Compile changes and open webclient in debug mode.
6. Put break points on code written in write record.
7. In webclient navigate to Contact List View.
8. Select one record and save record.
