Seems VS doesn't recognize that the version.cs file has been modified?
Does this also happen if you do a rebuild instead of just a build?
Do you have the harddrive write cache enabled?
Maybe adding a sleep() after calling SubWCRev would help?

Just some thoughts about what to try - I don't really know why this
