While looking for the culprit of bug #410608, I noticed that - when running
with --debug - source/line information was not available for the
System.Drawing assembly while it was available for mscorlib.

Apparently, the debug symbols for our assemblies (except for mscorlib) are
not installed (or symlinked) into our profile dirs (eg.

Since our tool assemblies are in the same directory they load the system
assemblies from that dir and not from the GAC, hence no debug symbols are

Should we also install (symlink on linux) the mdbs to the profile dirs?
