Summary0007914: ocamldebug hangs or crashes on printing lazy values with custom printer
DescriptionMPR#6684 was about printing a lazy value in ocamldebug with the generic printer.
It was fixed and this was very helpful. There is however a similar problem when trying to print lazy values with a custom printer. It either crashes with:

Fatal error: exception End_of_file
Segmentation fault

or hangs (presumably on an input_value trying to fetch the lazy value, though not fully sure on the diagnostic).

The same actually happens when printing functions with a custom printer (though the need is probably less common).

I feel a bit powerless to help more.
Steps To Reproduceprintf "let n = lazy (1+1) in n" >
printf "let f n = print_int (Lazy.force n)" >
ocamlc -g
ocamlc -c
ocamldebug ./a.out <<EOF
load_printer p.cmo
install_printer P.f
break @ "a" # 21
print n
