Watchpoints and breakpoints share the same numbering, so if you have  
already set two breakpoints then the first watchpoint will be number  
3. The problem is probably that your remote target simply does not  
support hardware watchpoints (or at least gdb or the gdbserver doesn't  
support them on that target).
