You explaind exactly the error case I had. My initial _link produced a
"glibc replacement", because I was not yet completed by checking in
the other files (in this case: the "real" specfile).

The only reason for me to have a "clobber & rebuild" was the fact that you
can bring the system to a deadlock. There are other way how you can
produce such a situation.

@Michael: Is is OK for you to add such a "clobber & rebuild" function in
to "trigger rebuild" or would you change "trigger rebuild" to do more
