VS 2005: Output files from Build -> Publish Web Site vanish

    Greetings,

    I have a plain VS 2005 VB.net solution that holds a single web site.
    The web site builds fine when I run it locally, and if I copy it as-is
    to my remote server everything runs. The problem is that I run Build -
    > Publish Web Site and whatever files are being generated are

    disappearing.

    I even tested my local copy of VS 2005 against a bunch of my other
    projects, and in every case the project works properly and I get a
    precompiled site when I request Build -> Publish Web Site.

    I tried selecting a different target folder, in case the permissions
    in the folder were hosed, but no, in every case each and every project
    but this one will build fine.

    Finally, I tried using the CLI:

    C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_compiler -v /
    appname C:\precompile\output\path

    It executes without errors, yet no output files.

    What am I missing here? I have been using VS 2005 for years, and this
    is the first project where I see this happening. The VS 2005 is up to
    date, running on XP SP2, also fully patched.

    TIA,

    Pedro Vera
