No - that's okay.

The problem here is that the editor holds onto the bp at the textLine level. 
So when you add (or delete) lines prior to a bp it changes the linenumber the 
bp is on. Unfortunately it doesn't inform anyone that the bp has changed so 
the breakpoint manager still thinks its on the old line number (== confusion 
:) I have been too lazy (ahem frightened perhaps?) to change the kwrite code 
to deal with this.

Note: an editor using the term "breakpoints" is strange, I think. We should 
be "annotating" a line with an icon _and_ a colour (the user could select 
icons and/or coloured lines). This functionality need not be restricted to 
breakpoints only.
