My apologies for not realizing this. I _did_ look at the trap DEBUG command
and even noticed the DEBUG_BEFORE_CMD, but I guess I didn't read carefully
enough to notice ERR_EXIT.

At any rate with commit
(and the one before that) this is now all in the debugger, and it works

When I get a chance, a new release, 1.1.0, will go out soon with this in

Thanks, yet again, to Stephane for helping me out here.

I make mistakes, that's why I work on debuggers.
