Eclipse/pyDev breakpoints driving me crazy

I'm trying to debug a fairly simple python application. So I'm setting breakpoints and looking at variables, the usual stuff you do with any IDE and language.

But for some reason that I dont' understand, my old breakpoints are still active, so my code is stopping at them every time through. How do I unset them? There is no indication in the source code window that it had a breakpoint, but every "debug" cycle, it stops.

In Netbeans, there was a "window -> debugger -> breakpoint" command that would show all breakpoints, and you could clear one or all. Is there an equivalent in Eclipse/PyDev?

In Eclipse, you go to the debug perspective and there is a list of all breakpoints. You can uncheck them to temporarily disable them or right click to remove them.

I haven't used pyDev, so not sure if they use the main view or a separate Python debugging view.
