Debugger - hover over symbol not working

For the last few days the debugger is not working quite as expected for me.

When I set a breakpoint and run the script, I put my mouse over the variable and then...nothing happens. Previously when I would mouse over an object the data would be displayed.

I can interact with the variables in the debug console by typing print(value) or type(value) - all that kind of stuff, but when I try to see what attributes an object has by writing object. in the debugger or in the main file, I am not able to see those attributes. I can access them if I know that they are there but otherwise can't get a view on the whole thing.

I checked preferences > debugger and 'hover over symbols' is enabled.

What else can I try to get those awesome features back?

Thanks for your help.

Does it work if you first click on the name so the editor caret is in it and then hover? Please let me know of that helps or not. In the interim, please note that you can always see the variables/globals/etc in the Stack Data tool and you can Shift-Space to force popup of all the visible values on the current editor.
