This is usually caused by IIS Health Monitoring thinking that the web service that you are debugging has locked up and it needs to be restarted. Check out this post for more details.

How much RAM is on your dev machine and are you running your SQL server on that machine as well? – Dave Wise Apr 26 '12 at 15:16
Yes, on the same machine. I have 8GB or RAM – Evgeny Apr 26 '12 at 16:15
I assume a multi-core processor as well. You might want to restart SQL once before diving into any serious debugging sessions as it has a tendency to eat RAM. – Dave Wise Apr 26 '12 at 16:33
Also, it is helpful if you warm up the site prior to debugging it by loading a page that contains your custom code in the browser prior to attaching the debugger – Dave Wise Apr 26 '12 at 16:33
