I think all of the authors observations are valid, but in real life I've never encountered any of them. I don't have builds triggered automatically from I notify or the like, and I'm not so fast with my fingers that it takes me less than a second between saving a file and kicking off a make in another terminal window.

And anytime I do an initial check out from any version control, "make clean" is always the first step.
