Anybody else suffering from this?

If it's running code it seems fine - but if you rebuild ( while its still running ) then many times it just dissapears - leaving a dead 'wipeoverable' remnant of its existance on the screen.

Then don't do it :) make sure you pause or stop debugging first, you can't even edit files while it's running anyway, so what is the purpose of a build? (well apart from crashing your computer that is)

I will clarify.

Since it 'does' let me, I would assume that it would handle things correctly. ( or else the rebuild functions should be disabled while running ).

However - sometimes - it will even 'vanish' when doing things 'correctly' i.e. paused - or even out of debug.

If other people have found this - I will assume its a bug with Studio - if not, perhaps its my install.

It would be nice to know which.

I have done a little bit of simulation in AVRStudio. I use the ImageCraft ICCAVR v7.x C compiler and sometimes just bring the source code and HEX files into AVRStudio. And yes, I can even see the source code. I have never had any stability issues with AVRStudio - except when we first got the AVRDragon. But even that has seemed to have stablized with the later versions of AVRStudio.

The only issues that I have ever had with AVRStudio (beyond the early Dragon issues) has been with some of the timer modes - 10 bit fast PWM, to be specific. There seems to be a bug with fast PWM but, that shouldn't be related to your issues.
