This is a bug. Thanks for the screenshot. It made things very
clear. Believe it or not, but in 3 months that this minor-map mechanism
is in place in tracebug, your situation never happened to me.

The problem is that your grid-stuff.R is not associated with the process
(and you don't have red DB in that buffer). Associate with the process
(C-c C-s) and it should be fine.

I have just committed a fix to SVN.

Thanks for reporting this,
