As I wrote yesterday, the whole thing is quite pointless
because one can switch the screens by hotkey after
DDB was entered.
What I wrote about X server interaction was even
over-optimistic - the X server will get a signal
but because waitok==0 there is no tsleep() which
makes the X server scheduled to.
So I agree to back it out.
(We could keep the renaming Debugger->cpu_debugger;
a "#define Debugger cpu_debugger" in system.h would
ease the transition.)

As I said, I'd prefer to not do it automatically due
to possible side effects. An md ddb command would
be enough imho.
