It would help if it removed the margin when all breakpoints in a file are
deleted; currently once it's there, it seems to be there for good.

I don't think this is much of a problem (other debuggers with a similar
display use combined breakpoint/current-position icons to handle this case,
but if that's too hard, I think people could cope with the current-position
icon temporarily overriding a breakpoint icon.

OTOH, I personally don't really mind the display margin being used in this
case, especially if it were made reversible like I mentioned above.

[Well, to be completely honest, I don't use the visual debugging anymore
because it's too buggy/annoying.  E.g., the default window popping-up
behavior is awful if you use gdb keyboard commands: give a gdb command, and
it hides the command window!]

Is it true that nothing can be known?  If so how do we know this?  -Woody Allen
