[Buildbot-devel] Mercurial clobbers on changehook?

I noticed that our Mercurial still does a full clone when the
change-hook triggers a build (which takes time and also rebuilds much
more than necessary). We're creeping up on 10 minutes build time now at
our place, and with an additional 10 minutes of tests, feedback isn't
However, if I manually force the build, it only does pull+update, which
is what I'd expect all the time.
We ought to get this fixed properly, but Buildbot seems to decide to
clobber (or do a full update) before my rewrites (and the
dontclobberonbranchchange fix). I tried looking at the code again but I
can't really see what's causing this.
Any ideas? (Perhaps it's just my setup.)
