What's new in the network dataset build process for Arc 10?

Can you please point me to a reference document that tells me how Arc 10 Network Analyst build function is different from previous versions?

I'm rebuilding a road network using a feature class of lines for the roads. In older versions of Arc (pre-10) when I used my own set of nodes (i.e. intersections) to override system junctions, I got 21730 edges after building. Now, in Arc 10, with exactly the same data and using my nodes to override, the network dataset builds out at 23786 edges. This is a substantial difference and fundamentally affects my results. What is Arc 10 doing during the build process that is different than what 9.3 and earlier did?
