I wondered if the pdb files even
had the sources specified.

Yes, the official builds (including alpha and beta builds) are
source-indexed. On crash, you will be able to see sources. Maybe windbg
won't work if you don't use the same paths, so try to set a breakpoint in a
function and have the debugger stop at that.

So I found code for a tool which is
essentially a pdb parser. On building and running it on any of the pdb
files, I found that there were no sources for all the object files,

They are not included in the pdb directly, but have instructions in them on
how it can be downloaded. Downloading makes use of power shell, maybe
you're missing that..
