Hi Adam,

Thanks for your response. Ok, I've filed the bug.

BTW, for the benefit of anyone else with this problem I found a temporary

I edited   "\Tools\Scripts\print-vse-failure-logs" and in line 60, replaced
"scm.find_checkout_root()" with the path to my source directory:

After doing this the build ran without errors.
