Why can't I see my symbols in MacsBug? - Mac Programming

I'm trying to do some heap checking in MacsBug under 9.2.2. When my app crashes, though, the heap is so hosed that there's no chance for me to do anything useful except reboot (if it weren't for MacsBug, the whole system would just freeze...)

    Default Why can't I see my symbols in MacsBug?

    I'm trying to do some heap checking in MacsBug under 9.2.2. When my app
    crashes, though, the heap is so hosed that there's no chance for me to
    do anything useful except reboot (if it weren't for MacsBug, the whole
    system would just freeze...)

    I'd like to put a break in my method before where I suspect something
    "bad" is happening, but I can't find the symbol in MacsBug to set the
    breakpoint. I hit command-D, then the first few letters, and nothing. I
    see other methods (though not all) from another library (my own) which
    I link in, and I've checked the project settings (Codewarrior 8.3) to
    ensure they're the same.

    What could I be doing wrong? How can I get the symbols to show up in
    MacsBug?

    regards,

    Thanks for replying meeroh. I already have that on...

    Here are the settings for the PPC Processor panel:

    struct align: powerpc
    traceback tables: inline
    target proc: generic powerpc
    func align: 4

    Other checkmarks:
    relax ieee floating point
    use fused mult-add/sub
    peephole optimization
    32 bit TOC offsets

    Any other thoughts?
