And that's exactly the problem. With MSVC, the definition of "debug" and 
"release" can take one of two meanings: optimised or not versus the runtime 
it's linking against. By default, people build non-optimised code (/Od) with 
debugging symbols (/Zi) against the debug runtime (/MDd). But you can compile 
optimised code (/O2) against the debug runtime (/MDd) and you can compile non-
optimised code with debugging symbols (/Od /Zi) against the release runtime
