Maybe you meant `commands', `while', etc.--those commands that prompt
for the body which ends with `end'?  Then `source' is not part of the
endangered commands.

The discussion was about "(gdb)" vs "(@value{GDBP})".  "GDB" should
still be converted to "@value{GDBN}", as that has nothing to do with
"set prompt".
