Yeah `run` doesn't currently work like that. However `info check` will show
you which event each checkpoint is at and then you can choose the
checkpoint. I guess you could script a command using Python that parses the
result of `info check` and chooses a checkpoint.

One feature that really should be added to rr itself is the ability to run
forward or backward to a specific event without restarting.
