Cannot remove breakpoint in Eclipse 3.3.2

Has anyone else experienced this problem? I can double click to add a breakpoint to the left of a line but then when I double click the breakpoint again it wont remove it. Then when I go to view all the breakpoints it will show two breakpoints on that line. If I double click it again then it will add another breakpoint to that same line for a total of 3 break points. And so on... I can't remove the breakpoints.

If anyone has experienced this and knows a solution to correct this problem I'd greatly appreciate hearing it.

Benjamin,

Have you tried removing the breakpoints from the breakpoint view?

Haven't seen that behavior myself (unable to remove from the code window)...what does the offending line of code look like? Is it only that line of code?

It will let me remove the breakpoints from breakpoint view. It just wont let me remove by double clicking or right clicking and clicking "Toggle Breakpoint".

I have such twitchy fingers that often I'll switch the breakpoint on and off and on and off multiple times. You might try clicking more slowly and/or adjusting your mouse settings.

If the breakpoint was conditional, it may not remove completely, just switch off. Sometimes I think Eclipse gets confused, so the breakpoint window is a good place to visit occasionally just to clear out the deadwood.
