Write access hardware breakpoint triggered by memory read

I'm using the SHARC 21479 with VDSP 5.0 SP 10.  I'm trying to debug a memory corruption issue using a hardware breakpoint.  I configured the hardware breakpoint to catch writes in a particular memory range.  I'm finding that the hardware breakpoint is triggered by memory reads.  The buffer is constantly being read and this makes it impossible to debug the issue.  I have the hardware breakpoint configured as shown in the attached figure.  The memory buffer of interest is in external memory.

 

Am I doing something wrong?
