This can happen because the debugger will use a reference to an object which can cause a 'delayed collection' if any. This doesn't happen in release builds so the offending object(s) will be collected earlier.

@JBR

Dare I say it?... better code... as in 'non-complicated' code.

From what I remember Hardcoals project is quite big so some level of complication can always creep in when developing larger code bases. One of the arts of programming is that no matter how large the project becomes always keep everything simple, clean and as easy to follow as possible.
