When the debugger is not running I see a break point in my source file (left side of editor window). I double click there to disable it and SE says: "Breakpoints are not allowed in files that are not source files"

Now this py file is for a different build configuration then the active one. When I switch build configurations to one that contains this source file I an then remove the breakpoint without this error.

But should it matter if I'm in a different build configuration?

It is trying to protect you there, but I agree it is a little bit too persnickety, especially when you are not in an active debugging session.  I'll relax that code a bit.  The worst that can happen is that you set a breakpoint in a totally non-relevant file (like an HTML document) when debugging C++ and are left wondering why the breakpoint never gets hit.

I'm now getting this error in beta4. My active project is set to my python project, and I'm trying to set a breakpoint (before running) in a script I'm about to run.

I'm able to set the breakpoint after I start the debugger, but not before I start it the first time after starting SE.

Fixed for next build.
