Debugger 'Step Into' button doesn't

Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

If you set a stop point in debugger and don't scroll back up to the currently running step, selecting the Step In button or F6 key will run the script to the next stop point instead of stepping.

Steps to reproduce the problem

I have a script that goes for a few screens (150 steps).

1) Run a script with debugger on
2) Step into the first few steps
3) Scroll down near the bottom of the script
4) Mark one of those bottom steps as a stop point
5) Click 'step in' or F6

At this point, it may run the entire script until the next stop point, or it may (properly) go to the next step and scroll debugger to that step.

If it works properly, then repeat steps 3-5 and it will fail for sure that second time.

FWIW, as a second issue that isn't worth its own report: I've also come across situations a couple times today where the F6 shortcut completely fails to work and won't work again until I restart FMPA.  I have not been able to reliably replicate this second issue though.
