Breakpoint is essentially a hidden code. Defined here:


It might be that you were visiting a very old code which had old style of
breakpoints, but it's very unlikely. You managed to lover-case the whole region
somehow, but I don't see how that is possible under normal circumstances.

In any case, the solution is always to kill it and make a new one.
