Apologies for the delay -- I'm not quite sure I understand the issue/use case for this, but it seems you (cristiz1992) may have resolved it in the meantime? It's likely that there will be some differences from the built-in Visual Studio publish feature as that use MSDeploy in some cases whereas AppHarbor will use vanilla MSBuild, which may not always invoke the same targets and use the same configuration as publish profiles in Visual Studio.
Also, I haven't heard of this issue before and since you both experience this issue I was wondering if you have the steps to reproduce the issue? For instance, is this an issue with new Visual Studio template/project types or?
