Hi Paul,

Don't worry, it's nothing like that :). It just means that the debugging
information is removed from the DLLs (which is only useful if you're
experiencing a crash and need to attach a debugger to the process to find
out what is happening). The space saving is quite significant in that the
GEOS DLL goes from 11Mb down to 1Mb....

Kind regards,
