Debug versus Release builds

This applies to fairly strongly and/or statically typed languages only, obviously:

The way I think of it, the difference between release and debug is the difference between trying to fly a plane with no instruments at all, and a possibly dodgy engine that won't neccessarily give you any warning that it's about to burn, versus a nice modern jet with thoroughly checked over engines and wiring, a full array of instrumentation and autopilots for everything you could possibly need.

Now - it's your backside in the plane - which do you want to fly?
