Windows build/debugging change for 2.3?

Around the time I upgraded to Python 2.3 (can't be absolutely certain,
though) I started to notice that debugging extension modules with VS
2003 became more painful.  In particular, now, even if I stop
debugging, I can't rebuild the extension module unless I explicitly
quit VS.  The complaint is that "the file is in use by some other
process".  Is this a change in the Python build, or something I am
doing wrong, or something else?
