Except my testing showed that your patch doesn't always avoid it.
That's why I wrote the test case.  Please try the testcase with
your patch, and you will see that it fails.  If it doesn't fail,
then I would like to see VERBOSE=yes output of the succeeding test.

Of course slow is better than broken.  However, as far as I can see,
my patch fixes the failure for good, *and* avoids duplicate automake
reruns.  Best of both worlds!  :-)  Or do you see any issue with it?
