The default build definition is used when you choose to force a build from web interface.

You're right. Actually, they will never used if there are no updates since first one execution.
We'll fix this in future version (certainly 1.1). Users will can choose on each build definitions
run them with a full checkout, always with an update or only if there are changes in update.

It isn't recommanded to have more than one build definition on a schedule. We'll run only
the first one.
