KDevelop project stuck

After building an application in Debug configuration, switching to optimized has corrupted the project so that it will no longer build.

SUSE 10.1, KDevelop 3.3.3, KDE 3.5.1

Developed the program under the debug configuration and then tried to switch to default or optimized configuration. Tried many combinations to try to get it working again, but all BUILD options give errors ending with makedistclean.
