A checkpoint is lost when restarting it. Forks and checkpoints aren't identical though they are close clearly. I expect that when restoring a checkpoint the checkpoint doesn't move. When switching to another checkpoint the main process should be deleted. A new main process could be created from the current checkpoint.
1. set 2 breakpoint and run to first
2. "checkpoint"
3. "continue"
4. "restart 1"
5. "continue"
6. "info checkpoints"

Notice how checkpoint 1 has moved to the second breakpoint.
