Sorry my fault, the option wasnt published.

I committed that, with added fine tuning "WarnOnSetBreakPointError"

But ultimately it needs 2 run commands, with/without debugger.

heaptrc shows without debugger too.
However it runs with (reduced) debug info.

I wonder... Even without debug info the exe (if not stripped) usually 
contains enough for exceptions to be intercepted by the debugger. (I do 
have to double check) But this is based on linker info and depends on 
fpc ppu.

The problem is that running an app without debuginfo in the IDE, still 
runs it in the debugger (unless you globally change to not use any 
debugger / dropdown in options)

Yet the new behaviour is to caught exactly that: running without debug 
info but with debugger.

So in this case, it must always run without debugger, but toolbuttons 
and menu  must visually indicate this, to make the user aware of it.

IIRC you can add the exception classes to the ignore list.
Even this is displayed in the global options, it is afaik stored per
