[osg-users] more on Windows debugging

I have the same problem.  It is caused by using the debug dlls from the 
install directory.  If you setup your environment to find the dll files 
in the directory in which they were built then everything works ok.  My 
guess is that the absolute path names to the source files are embedded 
somehow.

It sounds like your DLLs are being loaded from the correct place, but just in case, make certain that the DLLs you just recently built match the ones that are being loaded.  It's been my experience that PDB files can be very picky (frustatingly so, sometimes).  Check your output window for the DLL names.  Also, set a breakpoint on some code that calls an OSG function.  Step into that code and see what happens.  The IDE should prompt you for a source filename if it cannot determine where it is.
