I never use the '-s' option, or strip before linking. I've built over
two dozen stand alone GUI applications and example programs from the SDK and
seen the same behavior. The NT versions never run unstripped, and Win95
always runs strippped or unstripped. This is with cygwin, and not mingw,
which I understand does not exhibit this behaviour.
