I'm trying to experiment getting source server support working in visual studio 2010. It seems to cause VS to hang when loading symbols.

I have checked the standard options in VS. Enable source server support is on, with outputting debug messages to the output window. It downloads the microsoft symbols and loads them fine. I verified with srctool.exe that the PDB files are able to extract the relevant files fine. I've also verified that the symbol files get stored in the symbol server path correctly. I tried running VS with debug information but there doesn't appear to be anything useful in log.

I'm at a loss of where to go from here. I wonder whether the binary search path needs to be set? If I don't rename where the project is, but just delete the files from the folder, it doesn't seem to make a difference in the behavior though. I couldn't find documentation on the binary search path for VS2010 although the windbg docs have some cryptic information on using this.

I think I gave enough to generate a repro case, but I could try to supply the actual files if necessary. I can reproduce this on both xp64 and Win7 32 bit
