Chrome debugger break on global change? #126

Is there a way in the Chrome JavaScript debugger to set a breakpoint when the value of a global changes? I have a global say myGlobals.val. It's initialized when the app starts, but when it's used it's got a different value. I want to stop at the line that changes its value.

According to the following stackoverflow article, you can use Object.defineProperty to assign a custom setter function. And the put your breakpoint in that function.
