I've just tested the project at

When I run

bjam -n msvc

I see

msvc.compile.c++ bin/msvc/debug/debug-store-database/a.o

/Zm800 -nologo -TP /Zi /Od /Ob0 /GX /GR /MDd -c
-Fo"bin/msvc/debug/debug-store-database/a.o" "a.cpp"

So the /Zi flag is there (note that the command missed the compiler name
since I was doing that on Linux which does not have vc7 installed ;-).

Could you try that test? If it produces bad result for you, maybe it was a
bug which is fixed in CVS.
