My understanding is that python-pdbtrack-set-tracked-buffer has to
decide whether or not to (a) make a new buffer for visiting FILE-NAME
(in which case pdb should kill that buffer when done with it), or (b)
use an existing one (in which case, the buffer should be left open).
If (or find-file-visit-truename find-file-visit-truename) is t, and
FILE-NAME is visitied via an alternate name, then the current
implementation will get nil from get-file-buffer, create a "new" buffer
with find-file-noselect (and register that buffer in
python-pdbtrack-buffers-to-kill). However, find-file-noselect will
return an existing buffer, so killing this buffer is a bug (i.e., the
function think it's in case (a), but it's actually in case (b)).
If (or find-file-visit-truename find-file-visit-truename) is nil, then
find-file-noselect would really return a new buffer in that situation,
so it would be correct to kill it (i.e., with these settings, we are in
Do I have a mistake in the above?
