Sometimes files does got not overridden because they are not generated
anymore with the new configuration. With forrest clean you make sure you
have all files that the new config will produce (and only those!). 

Besides that you are *deleting* the build! That gets rid of files that
may influence your current code.

:) ok I do something like 

forrest clean;forrest run

to start my project. If I change something and the change does not
appear, I *instantly* kill the process and start it again. 

When developing pluings I do

ant clean;ant local-deploy;forrest run

...BTW I am *always* doing ctrl+r (mozilla) in my browser to force a
refresh of a page. That is sometimes the simplest solution when working
with css in forrest. ;-)
