After a clean check out and a successful build of Python 3.4, doctests were failing when running test_pdb. Specifically, doctests were failing because they were getting a "*** NameError: name 'execfile' is not defined" when running.

It turns out that my ~/.pdbrc file contained a call to execfile(). While removing this line from my ~/.pdbrc file remedied the issue for me, test_pdb probably shouldn't be reading from global configuration when testing the pdb module.
