Another CodeDOM Question: Debug Files

Well, I solved most of my issues that I had yesterday with the CodeDOM classes (although I'm sure I'll have more in the next day or two as I start to really dive into the code modification portion of my idea), but I just saw one today that's left me confused. When a command-line switch comes throught to create a debug build (/debug) I set the IncludeDebugInformation property to true. If the resultant assembly is a DLL, I get the pdb file in the directory. However, when I build an EXE, the pdb file is nowhere to be found. I found out that the EXE file is also put into a temp directory, but the pdb file isn't there.

Why is this? Am I missing something? Where does the debug file go?
