Confirmed. In fact, I checked backwards through version 4.2.1 and this behavior has always been the same.

I changed the summary to be more specific about the issue involved. I've also attached the file goo.m that is used for testing.

Here is a test session which demonsrates the problem

If the breakpoint in the subfunction is explicitly cleared then there is no issue. See the slightly different sequence below.

This is likely to be related to how breakpoints are organized which is under the name of the main function.

below is a funny looking script showing – at least in my view – that dbclear is not working as expected.

The second dbstop (goo 6) is still there.
