Yes!!! I don't like having to re-set my breakpoints on every edit
cycle. The 'R' (Attempt a restart) command can be helpful in many of
these cases. Just use 'b sub_name' instead of 'b line_number'
whereever you can.


P.S. Actually, *I* don't have to do that all the time since I use
*emacs* to run the dugger. I get to edit and debug without usually
leaving the debugger. The active debugger session remembers all my 
'b sub_name' list. The 'b line_number' stuff is very likely to change
within a file I'm editing, but is still OK in unchanged files.
