I had multiple cases of little tests which I sent down the bitbucket 
drain by doing stuff in build/webapp and forgetting to sync afterwards, 
and habitually doing an 'rm -rf build' after a cvs update. So yes, you 
should try to avoid at all costs to do stuff in your build dir. 'build 
webapp' sure takes some time, but in the end it appears to be the most 
foolproof method. The thing about 'build webapp' is the annoying 10 
second time lapse of the xpatch part, which might be because the it 
tries to resolve the URI of the web.xml DTD - this is just a wild guess 
however, it might also have to do with the documentation validation step.
