+Summary: When mdb files are missing, doing "next" goes into "instruction" mode
+If you're stepping through a program with "next", and you encounter a line
+in an assembly with no debugging information, mdb goes into an
+"instruction" mode.  I'm not really interested in stepping through the
+instructions, I would rather it just execute the line like gdb does. 
+"next" should execute lines and return to the current stack frame (unless a
+breakpoint is encountered).  This behavior seems like it'd be acceptable
+for the "step" command.
+Moreover, once you enter into the instruction mode using next, "finish"
+doesn't have any effect.  It returns immediately to the command prompt.
