Incorrect. Convex Computer Corporation shipped a production debugger
(CXdb) that did a good job of handling optimized code, over 15 years
ago. I didn't work on the product, but I did use it.
See the following
ACM SIGPLAN '92 (1992) pp 1-11, G. Brooks et al, "A New Approach to
Debugging Optimized Code"
Debugger program which includes correlation of computer program source
code with optimized object code
United States Patent 5371747
