I recall some discussion about the behavior you describe on the cmake
ml, but can't find it right now.

IIRC, once generated the project files, you shouldn't need to re-run
cmake, ever. CMake inserts something in the project files for detecting
that a re-generation is needed and automatically stops the build and
invokes itself, then continue, perhaps with some intermediate prompt by
the IDE about changed files, etc.

If this doesn't work for you, please comment it on the cmake ml. Don't
forget to mention the version you are using, etc.
