How about "...will now be set on all matching locations..."?  "Have
locations" sounds a bit confusing; at least I never thought of a
breakpoint as _having_ a location.

Will these additions and removals be announced by GDB?  If so, perhaps
an example or a note to that effect is in order.

Also, is "subtracted" the right word here?  I use it only as an
arithmetic operation, but I'm not a native speaker.

The rest is (trivially) fine with me.  Thanks.
