Agh, sorry. I didn't do a thorough search for "use_pdb" before. I think 
I saw the problem in main and updated test_main to match and (poorly) 
thought that would be the end of that. This explains why Maciek probably 
has been sitting on it.

After having looked at the other places where "use_pdb" is passsed, 
there are other instances of functions that take a "use_pdb" optional 
argument which would have to be dealt with as well. I'm not familiar 
enough with all the ways those functions are called to say how this 
should be dealt with.

With that said, I'm not feeling like it is my place or that I am 
qualified to be making the kind of sweeping changes that it would 
require. And for the time being, I'm not being annoyed by this because 
the underlying bugs that brought up the pygame windows has been fixed.
