Gutter vs. Dialog Breakpoint Discrepancy


I just witnessed an odd anomaly in IDEA 8.0.1. I was debugging, finished up, used the Breakpoints dialog to remove all the breakpoints and when I was done, I found that while no (line) breakpoints were shown in the Breakpoints dialog there was still a red ball icon in the gutter where I'd set one of the breakpoints I had used during the debugging session.

One thing that might be worth noting is that I removed all the breakpoints (via the dialog) while the program was still running in the debugger. Futher, I believe (but am not 100% sure) that the debugger was, at the time I used the dialog to remove the breakpoints, stopped at the one breakpoint whose gutter icon remained.

I've attached a screen snapshot, in case my description is not clear.

Environment details:

  • IDEA 8.0.1
  • Java 1.6.0_11 (for both IDEA and the program being debugged)
  • x86
  • Linux

Two further notes:

1) The image was taken after confirming the Breakpoint dialog when removing the line breakpoints and then re-invoking it.
2) The left-over red-ball gutter icon cannot be removed by clicking it.
