Please specify, if you have the package TurboPowerIproDsgn installed? (It appears not)

This may be several issues combined.

1) A hint with the entire source is shown.
During debug and if text is selected, the IDE will sent the selection to the debugger, to see if it is a pascal expression that can be evaluated.
This makes no sense for selections over a certain size.

If the unit is big enough, this will temporarily freeze" the IDE. The entire text must be formatted (word break)and that may take a few seconds.

2) The hint window, should be limited. It should never cover as much of the screen as in your case

3) The related issue, which is GTK2 only.
The related issue has no recovery. Your issue did recover, so it may not be the same.

4) Issue 0022016 which means hints will not hide, if the mouse is NOT over an IDE window.
Mouse movement outside of IDE windows (over Desktop or other apps) do not close the hint.
This may also apply to mouse movements over the hint. (Independent of the trunk issues below)

Further more:
If you are on SVN trunk: There is currently work in progress on the hints.
Certain source hints are intentionally kept open, if the mouse is over the hint.

With package TurboPowerIproDsgn hints can contain links that can be selected.
Note that those new features are not stable yet, and can crash the IDE

Part 1 is fixed in r37470

Part 3 and 4 have there own reports.

This leaves only: The hint should not cover the entire screen.

In order to reproduce that you have to:
- have the debugger active
- select a large enough piece of text, that could be an evaluate-able expression (contains no ";" or ":"). E.g.: "abc + abc + abc + ...." longer, and over more lines than fit the screen.
