This is where tools like Purify are worth their weight in gold. Had you run it against the code before you made any changes, these problems would have been found and fixed and your no-debug build would have run correctly on the first try.

I don't really do software development, but if I did I'd insist on having the proper tools before I'd take a job. Winging it or using the tools Linux ships with just doesn't cut it.
