Whats up with dev-cpp and generating debugging information over and over?

I keep trying to use the debug mode/run to cursor feature of dev-cpp. When I do, it asks me if I want to generate debugging info and rebuild the project. I hit yes, and it rebuilds. Then I try again, and it repeats. Over and over and over again. It drives me MAD! Yes, the "generate debugging info" is on. I sometimes manage to get it to work, out of blind luck, and once it works, it keeps working. But I want it to work the first time! Also, does anyone know why it sometimes just stops tracking where you are when you are in "run to cursor" mode? It can be quite annoying, although not so much as the first problem! Thank you.

I never had this problem with the 4.9.9.2 (nor with the previous, actually). Try reinstalling the program.
And be sure (but probably you already know that) to have all the optimization stuff off, or you wont be able to follow every single line...
