simply hitting stop and start without changing any code rebuilds the package. This kills us when it comes to deploying and debugging.

Can you share a screencast of when this happens and your Output/Build log?

I've been working with jonp and tracking some of this stuff down. One fix is in that shaved off anywhere from 40 seconds to a minute. After that we'll look at the next thing.

@stephen, is this still an issue? Our fast-build check would mitigate the stop>run scenario and I'm pretty sure that we don't deploy the .APK again if it was not changed.

Closing. No response and I'm sure this is no longer an issue - I've never seen it.
