While I think my advice is still correct, I can't seem to find 
the combination which caused a compiler message:

dmd -g -O -profile -release -debug -inline test.d

Also found that dub will do the same odd mix of switches:

["profile", "optimize", "inline", "debugInfo"]

Debug and optimize just don't make sense together, and profile 
needs debug symbols I thought.
