Default branch not working as expected

Documentation states that

Default branch which can be specified on the General tab of project settings is built whenever a new build is started from UI, schedule or API.

The project AutoMapper.Unity has default branch set to master. But when I push the "New build button" I get following:

git clone -q --branch=appveyor-test git:// C:\projects\automapper-unity

which shows that it's building for the branch appveyor-test (an example build is here).

Why is that?

    The behavior of this button has been changed recently:

    • if you click new build on "Projects" page it kicks off "default" branch
    • if you click new build on build details page and there are no builds at all it starts "default" branch
    • if you click new build on build details page it starts a build for the last commit of current branch

    will update docs.

    Yes, I could verify that behaviour (at least 1st and 3rd options). Thanks.
