What *exact* debug info formats DMC linker generates (and for what 
switches)?

The problem is that sometimes I can get functions names/file lines with 
generic dbghelp.lib, sometimes I can get it with MS approved hack for 
CodeView4 format, but sometimes both approaches fail.

Furthermore, in CodeView4 info I have seen incorrect records (containing 
  only one address for module, but I don't remember this well, so if 
interested, I should repeat tests)

This problem is rather annoying for me because I cannot show message box 
on exception with valid call stack unwinded and demangled, so I have to 
write stack frame address to binary file and then run my utility to 
decode it (trying with both PDB and CV4 approaches)

It generates codeview 4 debug info.
