Here's a historic one which I know would often run tests with stale code.


I would occasionally have to clean everything to get it to rebuild the code
under test.  I never figured out why.  I had another pretty similar setup
that ended up working the same way which I can't find right now.

One thing to note is that when I build the sources separately, I avoid
compiling to object files because I can't predict the name in the Makefile.
