Visual C++: "minimal rebuild" seems not to work

I am using Visual C++ 4.0 on W95. I am using the "minimal
rebuild" option and it seems not to work:

I have a file A.cpp which refers only to class A.
It includes file all.h which is consists only of includes
to other files. I change one of those other include
files which is the definition of a totally unrelated
class B.
According to the documentation, A.cpp should not recompile
even though it (indirectly) includes a modified .h file, because class A is not affected (with "minimal rebuild" ON,
of course).
The fact is it does recompile.

Commented:
Be sure that there were no any changes in all .h files which were included in your all.h file. For example if all.h include files stdafx.h, a.h and b.h; a.cpp include file all.h and file b.h was changed, file a.cpp will be recompile. To use minimal rebuild correctly you must in file a.cpp include only stdafx.h and a.h.
