Software breakpoints in "shared memory"

Having some problems moving some working code from a BF533 to one of the cores of a 561.


I understand the following error message


Warning!  A Software breakpoint is being placed at address 0x0080FE5C.          This could either be an explicit breakpoint or a 'hidden' breakpoint  used for operations such as standard  I/O.   Software breakpoints  placed  in  shared memory  are  NOT  recommended  as they may cause unexpected  results  when  using multi-processor debug features. It may be helpful to use a hardware breakpoint for this operation rather than a software breakpoint.  This message may be turned off in the Target Options dialog box.


However the breakpoint is one than VDSP set associated with "__unknown_exception_occurred" (there is another one for __lib_term or what ever it is caused -- I think there may be yet another associated with printing"


Rather than just turn off the message with the target options box, I would like to fix the problem by moving those code sections "off of external memory" -- Do you have some detailed steps on how I could do that -- I presume somehow by the expert linker, but I have not yet managed to identify what object block to move and how to move it
