5 class lib does not build when publish_wap is true

I've got a strange problem which can be easily reproduced and I've included two github repo's for you to help. My 5 class library won't build with the following conditions:
There's an old 4 website project and a new 5 class library in the same solution
Publish_wap is set to true in appveyor.yml

Without the old 4 website in the solution the class library builds fine. It also builds fine if Publish_wap is set to false.
The strange thing is, why does Publish_wap do something with the new 5 class library?
When there is no old 4 website in the solution and Publish_wap is set to true, it also runs fine.

I've created a repository for you to replicate this behaviour. It's a simpel visual studio solution with a basic 4 / MVC 5 website and a new 5 class library.

Green build:

Red build:

Note that the code in both repositories in the same. The only difference is the Publish_wap in appveyor.yml.
For your reference the appveyor.yml is included in the github repository.

We are migrating parts of our old projects to the new 5 projects and that's how I noticed this behaviour.

It's failing with this error: C:\Users\appveyor\.dnx\runtimes\dnx-clr-win-x86.1.0.0-rc1-update1\bin\dnu.cmd publish "C:\projects\appveyorbuildtest-broken\Asp5ClassLib" --out "C:\Users\appveyor\AppData\Local\Temp\1\PublishTemp\Asp5ClassLib68" --configuration Debug --runtime dnx-clr-win-x86.1.0.0-rc1-update1 --wwwroot "wwwroot" --wwwroot-out "wwwroot"
Microsoft .NET Development Utility Clr-x86-1.0.0-rc1-16231

It should not do a dnu publish for a class library.

Hope you can fix this!

    I'm going to look into that.

    Why wouldn't you just disable automatic publishing and replace it with few commands:

    Thanks for the workaround, using that for now.

    But I hope this gets fixed. We're using AppVeyor so we don't need a lot of custom build scripting. Our solution currently has 6 website projects and had 8 in the past and things might move around again.
    With AppVeyor it should just work, but with this custom buildscript things will break when we move or delete website projects.
