This 'fix' also breaks correct behaviour of latexmk. I rely on it NOT  
recompiling my huge set of sources when the sources have not changed.  
The sources I am working with run to hundreds of megabytes, and I  
definitely DO NOT want to run latex at least once if no source file  
has changed.

Is there any chance you could fix this in a more sophisticated way so  
that it behaves like it did before if ALL sources are untouched?

Best wishes
