Painful debugging in VSC

Is it only me or others share this experience that debugging in VSC is becoming more and more painful? See the example of the attached fig. The code flow did not stop at the breakpoint. It did land directly at the position of the yellow triangle. This is happening awfully frequently with not even stopping inside a function. Furthermore, when there is an error it kills me the REPL. It even randomly gives errors (and kills the REPL) when stepping (F10).

I have also experienced this situation in which the breakpoint is simply ignored by the debugger. I don’t know what is happening, it would be nice to learn.
