Hello Pavel.

It seems possible that there is no type information in ntdll.  Could you
please provide a more detailed script of what happened when you execute
these commands?  I would like to get a better idea what you mean by the
word "fails".

Also, could you tell me the full path you got ntdll.pdb from?  I can use
this to track down the symbol file and examine it.  You can get this by
starting the debugger with the -n command line switch.

testing - please ignore.

Hello Pavel.

This is due to a bug in the symbol handler.  At this moment, I do not
know when a fix will be delivered, but I think it's safe to say the fix
will be in the next release.
