great observation, this is due to the fact that the bot-conf
is in fact basis for a real ant build file to be generated
the way we use this forrestbot this calls for the target
bot.conf2build to always removing the work.build.xml and
default.parameters.xml.  This will ensure that the <style>
task will always generate a new one.

normal dependency checking inside the style task can fail in
this case:
edit conf1 and conf2 (timestamp0)
use bot on conf1 --> generates required build and paremeter
file (timestamp1)
use bot on conf2 --> style thinks that build and parameter
files do not need to be rebuilt (ts0 < ts1)

quick fix is to just always force generation of the required
files
fixing now...
