Frontend and VS cause each other to rebuild-all Editor
This is new (to me) in 4.15. I didn't see this in 4.14.1.
I build the Editor in VS and then when I build a WindowsServer package using Frontend, it decides that the entire Editor project needs to be rebuilt. Then if I change a line in my project code and build it in VS, it thinks the Editor needs a full rebuild. Every time they conflict like this I have to rebuild all 490 items.
I didn't do anything I haven't done in 4.14.1 so I'm pretty sure it's not me.
I'm not hopeful but I thought I'd see if anyone had any ideas. For specific issues like this web-search is literally useless. Too many results for much simpler issues clog my results. That happens for 95% of my problems.

Alright, I tried 4.15.3 and still hit this issue but it doesn't happen for me in 4.16. It looks like it's time to close out my question.
If you need to use 4.15 then the best way to avoid this issue is to build everything in VS. In the Frontend profile, turn off the "Build" command (checkbox on the right). You're building in VS and then cooking and packaging in Frontend. It works fine for me.
I'm going to mark this as the answer for the time being. Let me know if/when that should change.
