I'm confused by your choices.  "stop" is not the command you think it
is.  There's a "stop_command" in breakpoint.c but that's the
DBX-compatibility version of "break".  The command "stop" doesn't
do anything; it's only there for hook-stop.

Also, how can we enable "info"?  That will let you type "info regs"
while the target is running; does something produce a useful error
further down?

"interrupt" makes sense.  In fact I think this is what whoever added
"stop" actually meant to add.
