hand just to get the debugging information...

Also, why is the default for some assemblies, such as System.dll, omit
debugging information?  (<property name="debug" value="false"/>)

Finally, does anybody have any idea why I'd be getting a

particular, as any of the System.dll test suite's generates the same
error on my machine.  (This is why I tried getting debugging
information.  Even with debugging information, I didn't see any actual
stack overflows; after a function return, the StackOverflowException was
