Other pdb commands are also broken for the same reason (no trace
function setup in the targeted caller frame).
A new http://bugs.python.org/issue14728 has been submitted with a
proposed patch for these commands and the corresponding test cases.
The patch removes a while loop from the fast path, and that should also
provide an improvement of the performance of Pdb.
