5.1.7. The debugger reports “Unable to set vector catch breakpoints on exception vectors”

On an ARM7-based system, Multi-ICE tries to set software breakpoints on the vector table entries indicated by the value of vector_catch. However, if you have ROM at address 0x0, then Multi-ICE is unable to do this and reports this error message.

On ARM9 family, ARM10 family, and XScale microarchitecture processors, there is built-in vector catch hardware so there is no problem with ROM at zero.
