I can see two possible causes of the problem:

	o	Some debug formats (from memory dwarf-1)
		simply do not include source code
		information for included files

	o	given the function is in a header file
		the compiler may have eliminated it.

Perhaphs provide more detail about your example - compiler, host/target
system, ...  If you're using GCC then you can force the debug info type
-- gcc -gstabs ....
