how is b defined?

IIRC (need to check) repeat count cuts off at the boundaries of an array
    b: array [3..10] of integer
will never show b[11].

But ^integer(@b[10])[0] will show it

Also, if you use the "detail pane" in watches. This had a bug, that was 
fixed only recently. But the "value column" should be fine.

Otherwise can you get a lof:
