Not certain exactly what you mean by that - they *all* have a filename
entry.  However, there is no actual source file on disk for any of them.

On a possibly related note, expanding the "Source files" gets me roughly
10 million entries (as a conservative estimate :-), listing every C run-time
library function known to man (and a few that are only known to space aliens).

Somewhere in that list, virtually impossible to find, are the 23 actual source
files I'm trying to debug :-).  None of the other 9,999,977 source files ac-
tually exist.

Any way to get ups to *ignore* all those bogus non-existent source files and
concentrate its attention on the ones I actually wrote myself?
