Project is always out of date because of pdb's. In VS output window i see always: 'Project is out of date. Input file foo.dll is older than output foo.pdb'. Always the same. I checked files, Dll is newer after build on some msecs. Clean and rebuild don't helps.

I don't understand why you can't reproduce. I installed VS2012 on other clean PC (with only couple programs installed without any VS addins or connected soft). I run build again and again and i see the message on the top of debug window:
Project 'ConsoleApplication2' is not up to date. Input file 'C:\ConsoleApplication2\ConsoleApplication2\bin\Debug\ConsoleApplication2.exe' is modified after output file 'C:\ConsoleApplication2\ConsoleApplication2\bin\Debug\ConsoleApplication2.pdb'.

Also before this post i tried on my home PC... the same result. I attached video:
