where did cross-build customization come from ?

FYI -- don't intend to do anything about it -- just letting you know
I had a strange experience.
I keep both a Joyride build and an Update.1 build on my G1G1; I
switch between them with the 'O' button at boot. Today I used
'olpc-update' (from Joyride) to install the latest Update.1, then
used 'olpc-update' (from Update.1) to install the latest Joyride.
I normally apply various customizations in /etc and in /usr (e.g.,
to disable frame "auto-raise", and to preset some environmental
variables). The way I remember it, having booted this latest
Joyride build I manually edited-in my changes. But then when I
booted the latest Update.1 build, I found the /etc and /usr changes
It might be Alzheimer's that is making me forget applying my changes
twice. But I am left with the question: "how come my edits showed
up with both builds, when I remember making my edits only once ?"
