I'm on Windows XP as well, and hadn't seen it before, but now I've  
just tried it and it does indeed happen. It's very weird, I don't  
recall any other graphics apps ever having this behavior. I would have  
no idea where to look to fix it though, perhaps someone well-versed in  
Win32 programming would have an idea?

On Windows, when building in MSVC, just selecting Release at the top  
and then building will build the release version. That's one  
difference between Linux and Windows, no need to re-run CMake to  
select release or debug, as both are included in the generated project  
files and you can just switch in Visual Studio.
