We've had cases in the past where a release build works while a debug build
leads to an internal compiler error. Of course we also had cases where a
debug build works and a release build crashes. So to be on the safe side we
really need to test both.
I agree that if we have to pick one, release makes more sense from a QA
perspective. It's a lot slower, though.
