Looking at the pastebin you are using !lv = 2. Why the !? Without it, it works fine:
I just wanted to make sure I was executing a python statement and not a pdb alias. I re-tested without the exclamation mark and still have the same issue: -> import pdb; pdb.set_trace() (Pdb) list 1 gv = 1 2 3 def f(): 4 lv = 1 5 -> import pdb; pdb.set_trace() 6 7 if __name__ == '__main__': 8 f() [EOF] (Pdb) lv 1 (Pdb) lv = 2 (Pdb) lv 1 (Pdb)
Interesting. You'll find that if you let the function continue, lv is actually set to 2. Why pdb prints 1 I don't know. It might be interesting to find out why that is, although since it's fixed in Python 2.7 and Python 3, perhaps observing the changes in pdb.py (or other related code) between Python 2.6 and 2.7 might be the quickest way to find out.
