I can't seem to stop "Churn test until it fails" ?

*Edit: It seems that sometimes I can stop if I, very quickly, keep on clicking on the "stop" button repeatedly (with varying successful result).

There should be a window that appears in the corner of your screen, much like the 'Show coverage for these tests only' popup. This is the normal way to stop churn mode. The global option in the 'NCrunch' menu will also stop it.

The 'stop' button does have some logic to stop the churn, though I think this is only the red square. I don't think the crossed red square will do it. Does this match your experience?

Off course, it was too simple ;) (I have test window on another monitor so I didn't really pay attention to the vstudio window where the popup is shown)

It seems I sometime can stop it with "stop button" (bug report submitted yesterday about internal errors when doing so).

But it seems a bit counter intuitive as it is now. Churning mode has a "stop churning mode" link in popup, but still the "stop button" becomes enabled when churning. What if I want to stop normal running tests, while churning, without risking of stopping churning tests?

IMHO, since you have "stop churning" in popup, and stop button is used to stop "normal" test run, the stop button should be kept disabled when churning but enabled if running normal tests and ignorant of any tests being in the "churning state" :).

Thanks.

Thanks for the feedback :) We're having an internal discussion on this to see if we can improve the usability a bit here.
