MCUXpresso IDE not adding temporary breakpoint at main()

I am using v11.0.0 [Build 2516] of MCUXpresso IDE which is based on Eclipse IDE.

When I use it to debug, the IDE sets a temporary breakpoint at main(). Only upon the user clicking on start/resume, the program starts running. In ideal cases scenario the start/resume button is in a usable state as shown in the below picture. 

But after sometime, the IDE does not set up any temporary breakpoint at main(). Any breakpoints I set in the program are also overlooked while I enter the debug mode. The start/resume button is grayed out in the debug mode as shown in the picture below.

The program does not start running at main() as before, but it starts running at Thread #1 1 as shown below


I have made sure that "Skip all breakpoints" option is not selected. I have tried to clean and build, restarting the IDE, restarting the evaluation board with onboard debugger and also restarting my system. The problem still exists.
