Why not just consume the events yourself?

See the following sample python code:

svn cat http://llvm.org/svn/llvm-project/lldb/trunk/examples/python/process_events.py

There is a "target stop-hook" command you could use:

(lldb) help target stop-hook 

But I would suggest consuming the events on another thread from python, or just making a polling loop where you want for events for a specified amount of time.
