RuntimeError when using python debugger

@chriddyp I just got an example of how the debugger goes buggy when setting a trace in a callback. Decided to just move this to a new thread as it was getting unrelated.

Any idea what this could be based on the traceback below?

Btw, I’m using

dash                 1.11.0 
dash-core-components 1.9.1  
dash-gif-component   1.0.2  
dash-html-components 1.0.3  
dash-renderer        1.4.0  
dash-table           4.6.2  

Exception in thread Thread-193:

Hm, not sure. I haven’t been on Python 3.7 for that long yet. That stack trace is mostly outside of the realm of Dash and into Flask, Werkzeug, IPython. You might try searching those repositories on github for issues? Keep us posted!

So good news: I find that with standard pdb debugger, I don’t run any issues.

The issue could be a number of things (ipython, ipdb, my ipython configuration). Probably also has to do with some idiosyncrasies in my callbacks as well since it’s always hit and miss when this bug comes up. I tried updating both ipdb and ipython, which now causes an infinite loop of the below traceback. I don’t really know what is going on here, so I’ll just stick with pdb until things stabilize.
