I've not tried to actually run the examples myself, so I hadn't realized 
that. With respect to failures, the underlying failures that would cause 
the need for PDB to run have been corrected. I think it would be silly 
to introduce an intentionally erroring test case for this purpose, so 
you'll have to trust me on the logic being broken.

The problem as I see it is that configuration parameters are not being 
passed around in a consistent way. And the logic of rpython2javascript() 
is to use whatever "use_pdb" says ignoring the "jsconfig" entirely. It 
would perhaps make enough sense to say that they both have to be True 
for the debugger to be run. However, I think there is a larger issue 
here with the reason "use_pdb" needs to exist at all.
