This works, since Philip applied

If you want a canonicalized filename, apply the attached patch.

Can this bug be closed now?

When there is more than one function file with the same name, such as dir.m and @ftp/dir.m, dbstatus incorrectly lists the wrong file as having the breakpoint. The actual breakpoint is set correctly.


For methods which do not overlap with another function, no file is printed at all. This is also wrong.
