Breakpoints turn white and are not hit


I've been using the debugger in clion for years very regularly and I don't think I have noticed this before -- also, searching "clion breakpoints white" turns up nothing, so I suspect this is something gone wrong.

By "white" I don't mean the grey circle with crossbar described here, which I'm familiar with.  I mean it is just a plain bright white solid circle, the same size as the red one, which it replaces when the debugger is started.  Then the breakpoints aren't hit, but nothing else in the interface indicates a problem; looking at the breakpoint settings they are enabled etc.  When the debugger stops (because execution is over or I press the stop button), they turn back red.

I thought this might be a gdb error (I am on x86-64 linux) but I tried using the exact same breakpoints on the command-line and that works fine.

Anyone know what's up?



Please enable debugger logging as described here, reproduce the issue and send the resulting idea.log file (Help | Show Log in ...) to clion-support at Do not forget to disable debug logging after that. Note that logs might contain private user's information (like file paths and names). 

Also please send a screenshot of the white breakpoint. Thanks.


The breakpoints are muted


Right you are!  I had not noticed this feature before; it doesn't seem functionally distinct from "disabled breakpoints" -- it just looks different and uses a separate interface. :/
