basically attach to any process, let it run, go to symbols, kernel32.dll, sort by type, select all exports, press F2

I've never used x64dbg, but this issue description does not seem to be about what the title suggests.

It could easily be an issue with the order of breakpoint creation and the debugger setting a breakpoint on a function it still has to call itself, or a function which is invoked somewhere during breakpoint handling.

While x64dbg probably shouldn't freeze, this doesn't sound like an issue with ~"too many breakpoints" but ~"some bug with the breakpoint related code (handling or installation)".

I have used x64dbg before and setting a breakpoint is done like this:

  • cheap checks for housekeeping
  • call TitanEngine to set the breakpoint (write process memory + some other stuff)
  • add breakpoint in x64dbg’s housekeeping
  • gui refresh

Now when setting 100 breakpoints from inside the gui you get 100 refresh signals and a lot of memory reads that pretty quickly flood the message queue causing a massive freeze.
