Debugging MDI projects

I don't think this fixes the problem.  In project option in the Compiler
Options Tab, I have 'generate debugging information' already checked.  In
the Linker Options Tab, the 'remove all symbol table and relocation
information from the executable' already unchecked.  In the Make Options
Tab, I do not have the 'Print debug information' checked.  I will try that,
but I do not believe that it will fix the problem.
