Managed Package Extension - Developer Console Chaos !

Recently I was working on a managed package extension, which required me to use some GLOBAL Apex APIs from the managed package.

I mostly use aside.io, mavens mate or eclipse (in decreasing order of preference). I was giving Developer console a try, because of recent Spring'14 developer console enhancements, like :

  • themes (monokai my fav) 
  • adjustable font sizes, can't use Developer console with those big fonts :)
You must be thinking, I am pretty choosy ? Yes I'm, specially when it comes to IDEs, where I spend most of my life :) 

But, all the fun and excitement disappeared, when I ran into a strange save/compile problem, that made me quit Developer Console again.
