I had same issues Eric with version 1.0.3, then we upgraded to 1.1b3, which 
enables configuration, that specific build definition should be 
performed "ALWAYS", and that should be used "CVS CO" instead of "CVS UPDATE".

These two features can help you.

Also there is issue, that if you have several build definitions (as in your 
example), then if your "nightly clean install" fail, but "nightly site 
site:deploy" performs successfully, you will se green "success" icon in 
project list and you have not good view on project state until you check 
build results.
