Because FLOW3 uses many nested objects, debugging variables can become cumbersome because almost always the object manager is included which in turn has references to most other objects resulting in an endless recursion.

We need an optimize var_dump function which takes this into account.

Nice feature!

I know this is not finished, but after checking out the current version I think the current CSS can be improved a lot. I created a quick patch which does the following:
- fix some line-height problems (occured on mac/ff3.6)
- window is positioned absolutely (floating / relative positoning produced weird results for me)
- uses border-radius/box-shadow to get rid of all images except the linesBackground (I think this is a good place to use CSS3, as the shadow and the rounded corners are not absolutely necessary ;))
- simplifies html structure

Anyway, these are just some suggestions ... pick what you want from them :)

Edit: Ah guess absolute positioning is not the best solution cause that would only allow one var_dump per page ...
