[New-bugs-announce] [issue32691] "pdb -m <module>" sets __main__.__package__ incorrectly

New submission from Nick Coghlan <ncoghlan at gmail.com>:

For regular modules, the initial implementation of bpo-32206 sets __package__ to "module_name" instead of "module_name.rpartition('.')[0]".

This is not correct, and will cause problems for relative imports.
