Does this also happen when you change branches that do not have any differences between them, i.e. when no files are being checked out? Does it make a difference if you have the project configured to be parsed completely on open or not? Do you use precompiled headers?

If what you describe comes in fact from reaction to bulk file changes then there isn't much that can be done. You could add a feature to ignore file changes for a predefined period or until further notice, but that too will lead to incorrect parsing information for those files that did indeed change.
