Visual Studio Code "hangs" on debugging



Reproduction steps:

1. Open "" project
2. Open "scene1" scene
3. Open "MettaurAI" script with Visual Studio Code
4. Put a Breakpoint on line 23
5. Start Debugging
6. Enter Play mode in Unity
7. Try to "Step Into"/"Step Over"/"Step Out"/"Continue"/"Pause"

Expected Result: VSC does the corresponding action to the button
Actual Result: The buttons don't do anything/ the Debugging process seems to be frozen

Reproduced with: 2018.2.0a1, 2018.1.0b6, 2017.3.1p1, 2017.2.1p3, 2017.1.3p1, 5.6.5p1

"hangs" as in you can't proceed with stepping into or out of statements and continue/pause doesn't affect the flow of the debugging
VSC Version 1.19.3

    Resolution Note:

    This particular case has been investigated thoroughly and we have decided, in the interests of protecting the stability and features of Unity for users that rely upon the affected versions, to not address this fix for the time being. We understand that this will cause problems for some users, and so may address in a future version.
