Ralph and I just talked about this on the phone some more -- I don't think was the right fix.

We still need to ensure that all the symbols in orte/debugger/base/debugger_base_fns.o are pulled in from shared libraries at run-time. Totalview may well have gotten confused if we used the actual MPIR_Breakpoint symbol to pull it in (i.e., it actually broke right there, rather than when we actually invoked MPIR_Breakpoint, later).

A better way might be to use another dummy function to pull in all the symbols from that .o file. I.e., instead of doing foo=MPIR_Breakpoint, call some other dummy function that lives in debugger_base_fns.c. It's only purpose in life would be to ensure that all the symbols -- including MPIR_Breakpoint -- are pulled in at run time.

I'll go do that on the trunk right now...
