100% agreed here - as long as you don't keep .dbg and .pdb files together,
it *will* pickup the mismatched ,pdb files for debugging the application.
One point I meant to make... can we make the .dbg simplified symbols
-p(rivate) such that they are even smaller?  With the full blown .pdb's
available to all who are interested, I don't see that as a shortcoming.

I believe so... if others agree I'll make all this so before the release.
