OMG Breakpoints?

Okay, what do I have to do to make the breakpoints act predictably in Xcode 3.1?

Sometimes they turn gray, sometimes they get the icon like it stopped there (even if it hasn't). Sometimes I can fix it by clearing the breakpoint, cleaning the project, setting the breakpoint again, and then debugging.

Is it buggy as hell or am I just doing something wrong? I want it to break at any breakpoint I have there. If this auto-on/off of breakpoints is intended behavior, it's ******** and I want to turn it off. If it's a default, that was a stupid idea to make it a default because it sucks.

I waste a lot of time screwing with the damn breakpoints. Anyone have any advice that might make life suck less when debugging?

Yep it's super annoying. Not sure if it's an XCode bug or a GBD thing.

Turning off the "Load symbols lazily" option under the XCode debugging preferences. I'm guessing this is some sort of performance hit, but it doesn't seem to take any longer to launch.

So, turning off "Load Symbols Lazily", does that appear to fix it?

Yes, sorry. I didn't really finish that sentence.

Turning off the "Load symbols lazily" option under the XCode debugging preferences seems to fix the problem.
