nested breakpoints

I see it is possible to assign nested breakpoints (f.e. for sin(x) I can assign a breakpoint to the whole function and/or to x; for sin(cos(x)) we can assign up to 3 breakpoints - and so on)

If this is intended, I propose to add something to identify when there is a nested breakpoint - f.e. a white border.

If this is not intended, "toggle breakpoint" should look at the surrounding math (if it is inside an existing breakpoint -> disable it, otherwise set a breakpoint).

Thank you!

White border introduced for breakpoints to make nested breakpoints visible.

In 6606 the problem is even more severe, because sometimes setting a breakpoint isn't reflected by brown background. You think setting the BP has failed but in fact it i there. If you extend the marker and retry, then the same might happen. This leads to nested breakpoints and you simply get crazy if you try to remove it, because you need to remove them separately but you don't see them.

The only way to identify them is to run the sheet and see where it stops (yellow highlight.
