This is exactly the same as 'break *0x0123456' on platforms that
have hardware breakpoint instruction (which is all common platforms
for general computing).

You are setting a breakpoint that will fire when instruction at
location 0x123456 executes. Since there is no instruction there,
the breakpoint never fires.

It never did. Try 'watch *0x123456' instead.

In order to understand recursion you must first understand recursion.
