FIX: The performance report that is generated in Visual Studio 2008 SP1 cannot resolve public symbols by using a public symbol server

You profile a project in Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1 (SP1). After a performance session ends, a performance report is generated. Some public symbols are configured by using the debugger symbol settings in the Visual Studio IDE. When you view the performance report, these public symbols cannot be resolved by using a public symbol server.
