Questions about debug behavior in GUI

Philip Nienhuis
(Sorry if these are stupid questions)

Is it expected behavior that breakpoints set in the GUI editor in functions under private/ subdirs don't work? Not even when that private/ subdir has explicitly been added to Octave's search path?

When a function is debugged in the GUI, after right-clicking on a variable in the workspace pane and selecting "disp (..)" (or any other option except "copy") the variable contents are shown but this also leaves debug mode. IOW it looks like a silent "dbcont" command was issued as well. Is this a bug?
IMO for users this is at least unexpected, if not undesired, behavior.

Both "issues" happen under Linux and MinGW.
