Working Around an SSMS Extended Events Bug

Emanuele Meazzo finds a bug:

1. Open the “New Session…” GUI for extended events in SSMS
2. Give it a name, it’s not important
3. Add an event with a Duration Field, I’ve added sp_statement_completed and configure it to be higher than an arbitrary value

And then watch it go boom in SSMS 18.7. Click through for a demo of the issue and a workaround.
