Ouch, thanks for finding this and providing the pdb patch.
Unfortunately I don't have write access to Python itself (I have
2-year old patches lingering in the python tracker, I'm afraid).

If you can make a (most likely ugly) monkeypatch at runtime to fix
this from the IPython side, we'll include that.  There's a good chance
this will take forever to fix in Python itself, so carrying our own
version-checked ugly fix is better than having broken functionality
for 2.7 users.

I imagine that grabbing the pdb instance and injecting a frame object
into it will do the trick, from looking at your traceback.

If you make such a fix, just post a pull  request for us or a patch,
as you prefer:


and we'll be happy to include it.
