Hi folks,

The attached changeset fixes a bug that caused the image to freeze when
inspecting objects with huge #printOn: results.

To reproduce the error:

   1. Open a workspace
   2. Evaluate CompiledMethod allInstances inject: Dictionary new into: [
   :dict :method |  dict at: method put: method sourceCode. dict ]An
   inspector will be opened on the dictionary created above
   3. Click on self
   4. Notice the image hangs while waiting for the #printOn: message send.

To fix this bug, I limited the time to print the selected item to 300
milliseconds and showed an appropriate error message when that happened.

LMK your thoughts.

Nico PM
