[lldb-dev] Bug in SBTarget::BreakpointCreateByName

“-n” is trying to do things like

(lldb) break set -n foo

will break on bar::foo, etc…  So it tries to parse up the name, and weird names like this can trip it up.

Greg recently fixed some bugs with the -n parsing for ObjC names which might have caused it to break on your names.

Does breakpoint setting work when you use “break set -F <NAME>” for these sorts of names.  This option does an exact match against the symbol name and doesn’t try to be smart about it, it’s there as a fallback for odd names lldb fails to parse up correctly.
