Unity freezes when pressing Debug



Repro steps:

This problem only seems to appear in Unity Editor on Linux. Tested with Ubuntu 18.04 using the VSCode Debugger Extension

1. Download attached
2. Create an empty project in unity, and attach the GameGO.cs script to an empty gameobject in the scene.
3. Verify that your debugger works by putting a breakpoint in Game.cs line 11 and entering playmode
4. Set a breakpoint in Settings.cs line 12, then attach debugger
5. Enter playmode in unity.

Expected behaviour: Enters playmode with no issues
Actual behaviour: Unity freezes when entering playmode

    Resolution Note (fix version ):

    This issue rarely occurs and will be fixed by a future mono upgrade in Unity.

    I have the same on Windows using Visual Studio 2017. After 2 to 10 minutes it goes into play mode afterall. Attaching debugger while playing already results in a freeze also. This does not happen every time, but very often.
