Description
Moving code between Kylix and Delphi my project file Uses
clause has pathnames with forward slashes. I set the output
path to a specified directory so all DCUs are generated there.

Under Windows DCUs not in the current project directory
with '/' path seperators are generated in their source directories
and not the specified output directory.

Breakpoints set in these units are displayed as invalid.

It is possible to step into these units when debugging and
the compiled code runs normally.

Changing the path separators in the project source back
to back slashes removes the problem  for each unit to which
this action is applied.

This problem also appears to affect Delphi 6 (6.240) Update 2.
