Sometimes I accidentally leave my project in "Release" configuration, and I barely notice or don't notice at all.

The debugger attaches, breakpoints hit, and unlike C++ I have the entire stack frame and everything else at my fingertips, in C#, just like in debug mode.

There's very little actual code optimization done at this phase, or at least that used to be the case, and based on a little test @Super Lloyd (don't know how to tag here) ran some time back still seems to be. This is perhaps Microsoft's dirty little secret, they don't do much whole program optimization.

But mostly, the debugger works great because all the type information is there, even release, so you have the offsets of every member, and all the names.

It almost raises the question of why bother even having debug mode in .NET aside from conditional compiles (#define DEBUG) and metadata attributes related to it.

I think i may have hit a snag hitting a breakpoint in some scenarios but most of the time everything just works.

Not that I recommend this. I just find myself in release without noticing for awhile because of it.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
