Check http://djmitche.github.com/buildbot/docs/0.7.11/#Merging-BuildRequests
I had a similar problem, and simply set the merge function to always return False, since I never want builds merged.

It happens when all the SourceStamps are merged together.

Maybe you always request building from HEAD instead of using the specific revision (or hash) from the Change Source?

I have a problem with pending builds getting lost. If I force a build it starts like it should. During that build I force another one and then another one again, say 3 or 4 times, it doesn't matter. I now see on the waterfall display that there are like 4 builds pending and the first one is still running. As soon as the first one ends the second one starts but there are no more builds pending. After the second one is done no other build starts. What happened here? I'd like to have 5 builds if I press the button five times. It's important for me because several people can force that build with different CustomBuildProperties.

My config is:
