This sounds like a symptom of a deeper problem. At a guess bonescript
has some machine specific element in it but its not marked as machine
specific and hence the system is getting confused. Do you have a list of
the recipes/licenses that are showing this? It is just license issues?

IIRC we looked into that bug quite extensively and couldn't find a way
to reproduce it. If we want to get it fixed, we're going to need some
help distilling it down to a simpler test case to reproduce so we can
understand the issue, then we can look at fixing it.
