Yes, it does - but only if it is the same machine, the same builder.
In your initial post you were comparing different builders, and there
it is rather irrelevant.
When you want to compare different bots, you need to actually look at
the errors (view the brief/Summary log)
I don't see a previous successful entry for #9, so nothing to compare
with right now, and I surely don't remember the error count from
before the rename :-)
