Cannot reproduce on Linux with 3.8.0, both CLI (with dbstop) and GUI (with dbstop and using the editor) work for me with a script just created in the same Octave session. If someone can independently verify this on Windows, then please mark as a Windows-specific bug, but looks to work fine on Linux.

interestingly, dbstop also can't:

>> dbstop blah3

error: add_breakpoint: unable to find the request

>> which blah3

'blah3' is the file .\blah3.m

maybe it's because it's a script rather than a function?
if so, would you please rename this bug report as:
dbstop could support breakpoints in scripts

thanks.

steps to reproduce issue in the editor:
- File > New file
- File > Save file (make sure it's in a directory in the search path, or the current directory)
- Debug > Toggle breakpoint
then you'll get either a dialog box saying file is not in search path, or a message in the command windows saying "add_breakpoint: unable to find the requested function"
