I regularly find that pdb sets the breakpoint on the wrong line when I 
try to set a breakpoint on a function.  This fixes the problem
The real problem is that pdb tries to parse the Python source code to
find the first executable line.  A better way might be to inspect the
code object, or even have a variable in the code object
co_firstexecutablelineno, but that's too much work.

The patch fixes the problem when the first code line after the def
statement contains the start *and* end of a triple-quoted string.  The 
code assumed that the end of a triple-quoted string is not on the same 
line as the start, and so it would skip to the end of the *next*
triple-quoted string.
