I'm still not at all sure I like this, for two reasons:

1. This duplicates the RF-setting logic with all of the legitimate
users. I can see this blowing up in the case where a breakpoint API
user wants to clear a breakpoint and *not* set RF in case there's
another (possibly just-registered) breakpoint?

2. Shouldn't this clear the spurious breakpoint rather than leaving it set?

In any event, why not just change whatever you're doing to make this
blow up to use the actual breakpoint API?
