Right. And that's what I'm complaining about. You're talking about 
intermediate values generated every time the inferior stops and the watchpoint 
expression is evaluated, right? That's what I'm thinking about.

If you're just thinking about the values stored in struct breakpoint, then I 
agree with you...

Am I having a delusion here? :-)
