> I tried leaving the breakpoint around to allow for "break in all shared libs" but that experiment fell flat because it ended up creating the same breakpoint multiple times as each shared library gets loaded (e.g. it keeps finding printf over and over again in libc).  This patch still finds the first occurrence in a shared library and then deletes the pending breakpoint.  Are there plans to identify the shared library for a breakpoint in the proposed changes?

That sounds reasonable for the first cut (who would do that anyway). 
Get the underlying mechanism working right, and then start to work out 
the human-computer-interface issues.  It's really part of that regex 
breakpoints, breakpoint groups type problem and can be addressed in a 
later pass - once we've got more experience with the problem.  File some 
bug reports :-)
