[IPython-dev] Clearing exception info stored for %debug?

I just suffered from a complicated situation; I had a file being clobbered on 
IPython quit by a __del__ method from one of the objects in the stack within 
an exception that occurred earlier.  After the exception, I only ran one 
corrected command which stored the right file after a long computation, but 
when I quit IPython the data was overwritten by the partial results from the 
earlier, broken run.

This situation is probably a rare one, but I thought that one might want to 
introduce "%clear exception" or sth. along that lines.

Ciao, /  /                                                    .o.

    /  / ANS                                                  ooo
