Steps to reproduce:

  1. Add an object to watch expression, let it have some fields.
  2. Click any of its fields twice.

Actual results:

The watch expressions panel shrinks to become an editing input field, asking you to change the whole watched expression.

Expected results:

After clicking sub nodes twice, nothing should happen. Only clicking the expression itself (the root level) can trigger the editing.

As a developer I often need to click inside a large object to expand fields, and this behavior can become quite annoying.

DEMO code:

Try clicking some of the nested fields twice :)
