Maven Release Plugin triggering build

When I run a Maven Release using maven-release-plugin, about halfway through, when the plugin commits the release version

to the trunk, my TeamCity VCS trigger starts a build... despite the fact that I have a rule:

-:comment=.*maven-release-plugin.*:**/*

which should match the plugin's comments such as "[maven-release-plugin] prepare for next development iteration"; and also the rule:

-:user=BuildSystem:**/*

where BuildSystem is the name of the user that runs the Maven Release and therefore also commits the change to VCS.

I've looked in the server logs, but it's unclear why builds have triggered and why the trigger filters have not been applied.  Any suggestions on how I can troubleshoot this further?
