Hi Michael,

Thank you for your replay and sorry for my late one...

Hmm, asking the right questions is obviously an art form of it's own. ;)

I should simply have asked for confirmation that this still works, i.e
if it was worth carry on poking at this or not.
Sorry for the noise.

Ahh, yes that would have been a great "tell".

I ended up doing a full re-build with symbols enable and now the
debugging works. The next time I do a full re-build I will poke at
this some more. It will probably show problem being between chair and
keyboard. ;)
