the `pystack`, `pystackv`, and `printframe` macros in the sample gdbinit file distributed with python are too fragile. this patch (which relies on gdb 7) is much more robust.

I would prefer if these macros remain standalone (and thus fragile). Despite Python support in gdb, not everyone (more than five years after the bug report) don't use a gdb which was built --with-python. There is better support for gdb integration elsewhere in the CPython code base: Tools/gdb/
