bug#20074: edebug tracing can't be stopped with 'S'

The manual should have a note indicating this is unimplemented functionality, and the feature should be put in the emacs to-do list. I consider this to be high priority. Also please don't forget to include my email as a recipient for messages in this bug.

So is this going to be fixed or what?

From the manual:

While executing or tracing, you can interrupt the execution by typing
any Edebug command.  Edebug stops the program at the next stop point and
then executes the command you typed.  For example, typing `t' during
execution switches to trace mode at the next stop point.  You can use
`S' to stop execution without doing anything else.

Its never worked and the manual implies it should. Even if the manual didnt, it still should work.

First, I see this on GNU/Linux as well, so it's not Windows-specific,
at least.

And second, did this ever work as you expect?  I tried as far back as
Emacs 23.3, and I see the same behavior.  Moreover, the ELisp manual
doesn't say anything about 'S' interrupting a trace, at least
according to my reading.
