Does this happen if you try to insert the breakpoint before staring the
application ?

That's a feature, not a bug ;-)

If you insert a breakpoint before the application is started or use
`break -lazy' after the location is started, mdb allows you to insert
breakpoints on modules which aren't loaded yet.

Before the application is started, the symbol tables aren't loaded, so mdb
can't check whether the breakpoint location is valid.

The same happens if you use `break -lazy' - if mdb can't find the breakpoint
location, it'll assume it's in a file which will be loaded later via
