I uploaded the latest version of libedit in Debian experimental:
and requested a sync for Ubuntu Saucy:

Hopefully, this will fix the lldb issues.
I requested for feedback from some Debian maintainers/teams on this new

unstable (and it will migrate to Debian testing aka jessie).
I will backport it for http://llvm.org/apt/ at some point.
