Thanks for letting me know. I was not aware of this problem.

Isn't this a bit too fragile?

I do not mind trying this but would like to ask for an alternative
solution - can we separate the symbols from the executable and save it in a
pdb file? I imagine it should be fairly easy to do in bjam. That's what we
have been doing for a few years and never run into any problem.
Let me know if it is possible to try this first.
