This is intended, but I wonder whether it would make sense to have
different behavior in the case where the file is implicit.

That is, "b 2" would just give the old error, but "b currentfile.c:2"
would prompt for a pending breakpoint.

The rationale for this would be that, in the implicit filename case, the
user is presumably asking for exactly the current file.
