      Description

      In at least some implementations, methods invoked via relection calls
      Constructor.newInstance and Method.invoke are actually invoked by a native
      method. In these cases, a popFrame cannot be done while in the
      invoked method because its caller is native.

      This limits the use of 'fix & continue' functions in debuggers when
      debugging an application that makes heavy use of reflection.

      It would be nice if PopFrame could be allowed in these situations.
