Hi devs,

yesterday I tried to check on T37708 and tried to recompile Blender from the new Git repo.
As for SCons everything went well, and i got a nice release build of blender.

When I tried to reproduce the described error I recognized that an old bug I fixed some time ago was somehow reintroduced. When pressing P to start the game engine blender crashes without error message.
So I tried to build blender with CMake to get a debug build I could debug within the IDE.

Just to see that the CMake files have changed a lot and the debug build doesn't work at all because all changes I made to ensure that the proper libs are linked to debug builds were somehow removed.

It's really not nice to see that all the work I had done in the past was absolutely for nothing :(

Unfortunately my current daily schedule doesn't allow me to redo all this. This will change next year, but i must admit I am not very motivated at the moment.
