Here goes:

Index entries should not be capitalized, for consistency with the rest
of the manual.

Please use @kbd rather than @samp here, since this is a command one
types at the keyboard.  (Yes, I know the original used @samp.)

I think "a breakpoint menu" is better rephrased as "a menu of possible
breakpoint locations".

Other then that, this text is fine with me.
