The fact that they are red should have tipped you off. The only way I use the
red dots is as a quick breakpoint while a script is already running, where I
cannot type the breakpoint command. Once I edit the script, I clear whatever
dots I set and if necessary set them again. They survive between compiles, but
once you compile a script they will wander, or be ignored altogether if they
fall on a comment or blank line. And it doesn't matter if you make the edits
before or after the soft breakpoint either.

I may have, by chance, stumbled upon something.
The evil red dots have a tendency to wander, sometimes a line or two, and
I just discovered that I had two versions of the same button, in two copies
of a group.
I *think* that after deleting the extraneous group, it's buttons may have
migrated to the "canonical " button of the same name.
I had just cleared them entirely in the canonical group, added two, and a
few minutes later, had many (naturally, in places that stopped while in a
modal dialog . . .)
