Because buildhost is set to do the incremental build now to reduce the
load because we don't have really good hardware in that server.  That
means I don't remove the tmpdir but build upon it again so OE only
needs to build new stuffs.  However, after you keep it running like
this for weeks, OE will have some strange behaviors.

For example, openmoko-tasks2 can build fine if you start from scratch,
but it keeps failing on the buildhost.  After I cleaned up the work
and stamps directories, it resumes normal.  Same thing happened to
linux-openmoko, too.

I'll look into this once I have some time.  Because we're doing a big
update to sync from the OE upstream and merge back now, I'll do it
