The experience here is definitely rough.  You should see the call stack in
the VS call stack window.  And it should include line number information
as well and you should be able to double click on a frame and go to the
line immediately.  But the function names are rather mangled so it doesn't
look very pretty right now.  We need to do more work to integrate w/ the
debugger beyond what we get for free from VS.
