But both the internal node dependency and the file dependency above are stable, so why is this scanner object outdated? The .stc file is a generated file of type H and it is not regenerated since it is stable nor does it need to be regenerated. But for some reason the scanner determines the file to be outdated which appears to cause the rebuilds that I am seeing.
