           Summary: WebCore source level debugging on Windows not reliable
                    in some cases
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 7
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: WebKit Misc.
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: sfalken at apple.com

WebCore on Windows links as a static library.
Later in the build process, this static library is linked into WebKit.dll.

The WebCore build generates its symbolic information into a vc80.pdb file
sitting in the WebCore obj directory.
Depending on how to components are built, this pdb can be lost.

This can result in an inability to source level debug the WebCore code.

A similar issue is discussed here:

The fix is to use a more applicable name for vc80.pdb, and to generate it into
a folder alongside WebKit.lib. As long as the pdb is carried along the build
process with WebKit.lib, symbols will be available for debugging.
