So, I think I just encountered the following problem:

1. Turn on all the new-fangled auto-compilation.
2. Add a planet require (for something not currently installed) to the
module in the definitions window.
3. Watch while your entire collections tree gets recompiled.

Presumably planet needs to forget the fact that it's running under CM
when it runs setup-plt.
