in thread action in debugger - how to turn off

Looks like a problem 'use strict' would have caught. It can be fixed by just inserting one line into "sub DB" of perl5db.pl:

my $action;

Update (late): Broken by:

commit 04e43a21088e2c6b07ebde9e57007350cfd7310b Author: Daniel S. Lewart <lewart@uiuc.edu> Date: Tue May 22 21:18:03 2001 -0500

specifically:

- if (($stop,$action) = split(/\0/,$dbline{$line})) { + if ($dbline{$line} && (($stop,$action) = split(/\0/,$dbline{$line +}))) {

But I'd still fix it by just putting a line before that:

my( $stop, $action );

There's nothing like fixing a decade-old bug.
