I think it has something to do with the way the Web Application project type handles the App_Code folder.
1. Create a folder to store your code in the web project (I just called mine "code") and move the stuff from your app_code folder into this new folder.
2. Right click the classes, select Properties, and change the Build Action to "Compile".
