MD 3.0.3 RC1 (08174fd97970bf5c94e2a27dbd9b846a7d7fd2c1)
MT 5.3.4 (abd3c5c3e15d89cfe55d2343663ff116f798ea8e)

Xcode 4.3.2
Mono 2.10.9_11
Lion 10.7.4

This issue does not occur on MD 3.0.2 with MT 5.3.4
Comment 1 PJ 2012-06-05 12:47:13 UTC
This issue also does not not occur with MD 3.0.3 and MT 5.2.12.

Seems like it's a combination of MD and MT changes.
Comment 2 Sebastien Pouliot 2012-06-05 14:39:20 UTC
It works with MD 3.0.2 with MT master - so it may not be caching related after all.

PJ got a link to 3.0.3 RC1 ? I'd like to reproduce it before fixing it (and be sure we nail the right thing).
Comment 3 Sebastien Pouliot 2012-06-05 15:19:34 UTC

GCC did not like our existing space quoting but we never hit that case before --cache was introduced (and where the space condition became possible).

Fixed in master: e50c2033d752b29d3cb13e3c75689338b059209d

Let me know if you want this in the 5.3.4 branch too.
Comment 4 Duncan Mak 2012-06-06 14:39:15 UTC
This fix is now available in the 5.3.4 branch as well.
