TC 3.0.1 not picking up pending changes for "Release-Candidate" builds


New TeamCity (3.0.1, build 6039) does not show pending changes for our release-candidate build. I've tried attaching a VCS root with no checkout rules and restarting the server, but it makes no difference.

Last change under the VCS root was today (9 apr), but "Pending Changes" tab shows no changes even though latest build (which succeeded) was 2 april. And Project home-page also shows no changes pending. Neither does "Change Log" tab show any changes since last build, although for the continuous build configpointing to the same VCS rootthere are pending changes showing on this tab.

Here's a "Settings" tab listing of a sample "Release Candidate" configuration:

I was expecting the pending changes query to have been since the last build. However, it seems that pending changes begin to be picked up once the VCS root is added, but a gap exists between the previous build and the point that the VCS root is added. Can someone confirm this behavior?

You are right, the changes are listed since the moment VCS root was attached/modified and with some scenarios of the roots editing some changes may be not listed in TeamCity.

We have an issue to address that:
Please watch/vote for it.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
