The source appears for me if I do C-c C-s immediately after startup.

I can in general set breakpoints using C-x SPC in the source buffer
after the source appears, which will be hit after I resume
execution.  So I guess I don't observe your problems.  I am using a
custom "pdb" executable script though, maybe this helps:

exec python $HOME/opt/python-2.3/lib/python2.3/pdb.py "$@"
