c++.beta - problem with symbols during debugging

Hello,

I posted this some time ageo without getting any answer. Therefore here
once again:

When linking my application with debug information the symbols appear
now in a different form than before. They are displayed like "module::var"
instead of simply "var".

No problem so far, only slightly harder to read, because instead of short
local variables you have "long_function_name::var" instead and this
puzzles if there are some local variables in a function and you search one
of them.

BUT annoying is the fact that MS Visual Studio isn't able to handle these
symbol notation. Their names and values are displayed, but their values
cannot be changed during the debug session, because the Studio Debugger
doesn't know how to handle them.

Therefore I want to know, whether it's possible to change to the old
simple notation?


Regards

I know what the problem is. I'll see if I can fix it. -Walter
