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.

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.
