When debugging a Python process in GDB with output-radix 16, the py-bt, py-locals, py-value, etc. commands from fail with messages like "(unable to read python frame information)".

The problem comes down to the int_from_int function attempting to convert its string argument from a base-10 integer representation, even if that string is something like "0xf".  The attached patch fixes this.
