Breakpoints being ignored

Hard type them, you'll have 100% success. The graphical ones are less than
perfect. Making big changes to a script, cutting or pasting large amounts
seems to confuse the script editor as to where the graphical breakpoints
were set and can simply leave a breakpoint in a portion of a script that
will not get hit.

Hard type them, comment them out if you are not sure if you will need them
