Iirc, there is a timeout setting in the scheduler for this:

 From the "scheduling builds" manual section:

Many schedulers can be configured to wait a while after seeing a source-code change - this is the 
tree stable timer. The timer allows multiple commits to be "batched" together. This is particularly 
useful in distributed version control systems, where a developer may push a long sequence of changes 
all at once. To save resources, it's often desirable only to test the most recent change.
