Known Issue Of:


After adding feature "Continuous build detects changes that occur during build execution" in 2.11 this problem started appearing sporadically in a certain integration test on Windows. The commit message to ignore the test failure describes the problematic situation in the integration test.

The fix to the problem would be to ignore watching intermediate directories.

https://discuss.gradle.org/t/war-plugin-causes-continuous-to-run-continuously/18074 has an example where the build gets in to a continuous loop. However that particular case would be solved without using "clean" in the continuous build targets.

.gradle and build directories are now always ignored.
