There is a known issue (in GDB) that leads to crashes when variables are 
inspected (via hint/watch or otherwise)

There is another issue, if your GDB is translated (none English), see 
same wiki page.

An issue with breakpoints is not yet known.
You can produce a log (see bottom of that wiki page). But given the 
watches bug, even if an issue with breakpoints can be found and maybe 
fixed, it will not help much.
