I'll apply them sometime next week. In the meantime, give it some more
testing to see whether there are more gotchas.

The previous bug was fixed by this:

     def new_do_quit(self, arg):
-        __IPYTHON__.Completer.all_completions=self.old_all_completions
+        if hasattr(self, 'all_completions'):
+            __IPYTHON__.Completer.all_completions=self.old_all_completions
         return OldPdb.do_quit(self, arg)

(it was AttributeError - there was no old_all_completions. Also see
whether there is a cleaner fix).
