Retain text cursor position in VS2008 editor after “Break All”

Retain text cursor position in VS2008 editor after “Break All”

I'm having trouble finding a way to prevent the VS2008 debugger from automatically jumping to the currently executing line of code when I click "Break All" to edit a source file. I want to keep my editing cursor where it is in a specific method.

A possible workaround is to use Bookmarks to jump back once debugging, but with frequent breaks and large source files (and programmer multitasking) it becomes cumbersome quickly.

I'm also open to other workarounds as well, or strategic suggestions in general.
