The debug build is more beneficial to finding an explanation for bugs, there are some
asserts which would popup a window, whereas the release build may run slightly faster, it
would crash at that same hypothetical bug site.

I would not make any changes.  Realize we are now running at lightspeed.  That problem was
fixed within 15 minutes of it being reported.  I recognized it, Jean-Pierre took my tip
and fixed it instantly later.  Its all code language, literally.

He and I can almost communicate by ESP now, coming up on seven years now.  :)
