One thing I noticed was that the filesize of the .exe file was 26MB. I
expect this is because the symbols & debug data are included. It makes a
big difference to the size (my package is 10.5MB), you use the command

 strip filename.exe

in linux/mingw to remove the symbols. I don't know (but doubt) if there
is any benefit (in terms of error reporting) to be gotten from keeping
the information.
