This turned out to be simple to fix. In the example above, I was simply
adding <variant>release to the build request for "hello". But "variant"
is a composite property, so I should add <optimization>on and
<debug-symbols>off, also. IOW, I had to expand composites. Done now and
commited. Will create a test case tomorrow.
