#946 can't interact with debugger console

No

- System Ubuntu 9.04
- Eclipse version 3.4.2
- Pydev version 1.4.7.2843 (happened on 1.4.6 as well)
- Eclipse install location /opt/eclipse
- Project location ~/workspace/PyDevTest

Failing to interact with the debugger console as documented in http://fabioz.com/pydev/manual_adv_debug_console.html
Created a simple file with a breakpoint (test.py):
x = 5
print x
x = 10
[breakpoint here] print x

I'm starting to debug the file, hitting the breakpoint and entering the debug perspective.
When trying to display x (entering "print x" and 2 new lines) nothing is printed.
When trying to change x value ("x = 8") and continuing, 10 is still printed by the program, so it's not just displaying the output problem, it seems like the statements are not being evaluated.

Attaching a screen shot for clarity.

    Hi, I've just tested it here and it seems to be working with (some python versions don't support changing variables in a frame and this is probably the issue here).

    Checked to work with python 3.1.2 and python 2.6.5 (with pydev 1.6.4)
