phpdbg segfaults when attempting to run after setting a conditional breakpoint using the NUMERIC_PARAM (lineno only) format.

# repro steps
phpdbg -f script.php

b @ 3 if $i > 1

# further discussion
phpdbg supports expressing non-conditional breakpoints in a number of different ways: file, method, opcode etc. The supported expression format for conditional breakpoints appears to be far less flexible. Currently, in order for a conditional breakpoint to work, the location param must be given as the absolute path to a file:lineno. Not doing so leads to surprising results (e.g. segfault or silent failure).

Test script:
$i = 1;
echo $i++;
echo $i++;
echo $i++;
echo $i++;

Expected result:
1. phpdbg does not segfault even if breakpoint format input by the user is malformed or unsupported.

2. if a user attempts to set a breakpoint in a way that is unsupported, phpdbg immediately emits an error (as opposed to silently failing or failing later.)

3. to the extent that it's sensible, phpdbg should support expressing conditional breakpoints in all the same ways it is possible to express non-conditional breakpoints.

Actual result:
