      Description

      1. Create a Node.ACS project
      2. Add a Node.ACS JavaScript exception breakpoint from the 'Run' menu
      3. Open the Breakpoints view and right click the breakpoint
      4. Click the 'Breakpoint Properties' and check the 'Caught Exceptions' option.
      5. Launch the debug session by right-clicking the project and selecting Debug As -> Local Node.ACS

      The problem manifests itself after the launch.
      Switch to the Debug perspective and you will notice a lot of flickering in the Debug view for about 30 seconds.

      What actually happens is that the Node.ACS loading has a lot of caught JS exceptions that we skip by resuming the session. This is an implementation artifact after the fix for TISTUD-4796, and we need to find a way to avoid that flickering.
