My opinions:

1) It's not a bug, in that its behaving exactly as documented;
2) but it would be nice to have better behaviour;
3) but it would probably be hard to achieve that behaviour;
4) I'm not opposed to the documentation for the 's' command in the
debugger to be improved to clarify what's meant by 'the next statement'
(but I'm not volunteering to do it myself).
