I'm working with a python library that provides a class which subclasses 'dict' (thereby providing both attributes and elements, e.g. http://www.python.org/download/releases/2.2.3/descrintro/#subclassing\). However, the pydev debugger only shows the dictionary elements, not the attributes in the variables window. This severely limits my ability to use the pydev debugger with this library.
Additionally, there seems to be a bug when trying to expand these dict subclasses (by clicking the triangle in the name column) -- the variable will flicker for a second and then the triangle will simply disappear rather than showing me either the dictionary elements or class attributes.
Note that the variables window has the same problem for subclasses of 'list'.
