+    // Don't go down into pointers or references, to avoid a loop
+    lldb::SBType valueType = member.GetType();
+    if (!valueType.IsPointerType() && !valueType.IsReferenceType())
+      if (ExamineSBValueForChange(member, vrwbChanged) && vrwbChanged)
Better to keep this to 1 API call by using "uint32_t SBValue::GetTypeFlags()". That call returns a bunch of type info bits that will be set from lldb::TypeFlags and it allows you to get all of the info you need on a type pretty quickly:

// Skip pointers and references to avoid infinite loop
if (member.GetType().GetTypeFlags() & (lldb::eTypeIsPointer | lldb::eTypeIsReference))
