How to debug assemblies in the GAC?

Hi gurus,
I usually debug .NET assemblies by pointing to the pdb folder in the VS.NET
solution properties and attaching to the process.However, this method does
not work for me for assemblies installed in the GAC because the timestamp of
those assemblies in the GAC is the time at which they were added to the GAC,
not the time at
which they were built. Consequently, the timestamp of the pbs and dlls don't
match and VS.NEt does not load the symbols while debugging.

So I have to manually copy over the dll using the command line (xcopy) to
the appropriate location in the GAC. This works, but it is too cumbersome
and not efficient.

Do you know of an easier way to debug assemblies in the GAC?
