For quite some time already, I experience that some changes fail to 
trigger local recompilation of affected files (say, a header changes, 
and not all CXX files that include it - directly or indirectly - get 
recompiled). I use VS2019.

Which usually means, that e.g. updated higher-level module tries to link 
against unupdated lower-level library (and that results in such link 
errors). Usually cleaning affected entities (like 'make 
Library_tk.clean') helps.

Sometimes it all builds, but then I start to see mysterious run-time 
errors, which means a similar failure, where some code uses older memory 
layout, and another code uses a new memory layout. Then I have no other 
choice than to 'make clean'. No idea why it all happens.
