Thanks for the tip. The problem was indeed that the current direction has be set to the program (and .pdb) directory. Otherwise winedbg looks for the .pdb file at many locations but not the right one (I learned this from "warn" debug messages).

Now I have the next problem: RagTime uses C++ exceptions quite extensively. Each  exception drops me into winedbg. Continuing with "pass" works nicely, but the frequency makes debugging pretty much infeasable.

Is there any way to tell winedbg to ignore/auto pass C++ exceptions?
