digitalmars.D.bugs - Compiler does not identify imported WinMain

I have a project where I have a generic WinMain entry routine exported 
from a static library.  The WinMain is defined in the import file but 
the compile will fail as it fails to pick up the winmain in the import 
and therefore does not attempt to create a windows exe. (only under 
-release, it works in -debug?)  There is a work around to just define a 
dummy winmain function in the main source file.  Shouldn't the compiler 
identify the imported winmain or if not how about a compiler switch to 
force a windows exe?
