Rstudio crashes when using debug

I want to debug a function i made. If i use the debug() function i get a lot of errorcodes. It doesnt matter which function i want to debug, i always get the same error. The error repeats itself until i end RStudio in task manager.
I uploaded the error code in a picture.
For example, i cant debug this function:

test <- function(x){
y <- x^2

Welcome to the RStudio community!

Judging by a similar post it seems this issue is indeed RStudio related. I tested it and it rund fine for me, but I'm on the latest version of RStudio (Version 1.3.1073)

I suggest you update your RStudio (Help -> Check for Updates) and see if the issue persists. Also, to make sure it's RStudio if this fails, try to run the code in plain R to verify.

Hope this helps,
