You can try the attached patch. What it does is that it matches
the "current_pc" with the start address of the associated function
(if any). If they are identical, then we're at the beginning of
the function.   In that case, we know that the function will appear
frameless since the frame hasn't been setup, but we also know how to
unwind properly from it.  I can't test the patch right now, so let
me know how it goes.

Not sure. I suspect that most people don't debug programs using
threads, and so don't need AdaCore's patch. And if you don't install
the patch, then the "next" problem goes away.
