Configuring SecurCore behavior if the processor clock stops when stepping instructions

If a step instruction operation fails, you must consider the configuration setting No error if step-instr can’t stop (NO_ERROR_ON_STEPRUN).

This configuration item controls the generation of error messages if a step instruction (stepi) operation fails because of a timeout attempting to stop the processor after a step is complete. This can occur on the SecurCore if an instruction execution results in the processor clock being disabled through CLKEN. The processor appears to be in a running state. If you use the default setting of True, no error appears if an instruction step results in the processor running. If you set the item to False, an error dialog appears in your debugger.
