In that case you have to start the debugger first. Of course there
will be cases where it won't work as well as you'd like, you'll have
the same with the in-process solution, there are many cases where it
won't work. And actually the debugger solution has more chances to
work reliably since being in a separate process it interferes much
less with the running application.
