Hi Mark,

this test was added by
and that commits changes the way the memory locations to watch are stored
and handled for watchpoint. Since software watchpoints do not actually have
any memory locations to watch, I suspect that the crash this test is supposed
to guard against did not happen with software watchpoints. Are you on a target
with no hardware breakpoints?
