If the auto game stuff depends on DEBUG you have to compile with
debug. This is bad since a lot of debug messages are now generated
(function calls) and the last time I tried this (more than a year ago)
it slowed down the game.

I agree that the right way is to make this depending on the
cmdlevel. There is just no framework yet to describe the special value
of -1.
