lldb uses LLDB_INVALID_LINE_NUMBER to mean line number information is not available, and 0 to mean this is code that was generated by the compiler, but is artificial.  That's the way clang marks code (e.g. junk generated by ARC) that lldb will need to step through, or whatever, but should not show to the user.

That's a useful distinction, and I'd like to maintain it.  What bad behavior are you seeing based on this?
