I am not sure I agree with that.  The act of doing a fresh checkout of that

Personally, I consider that a bug. I believe I have even seen a patch submitted
to change this behavior thought I don't remember what the patch did.

Yes, I'd forgotten about that bug and patch - thanks for the reminder. I just checked the NEWS file, and it doesn't look like the patch has been released yet. My apologies for the misinformation.
