Why are the baselines not updating on my stream when I promote the snapshot (change the owner) to the stream?

Why are my baselines not updating on stream b below when i promote the snapshot from my workspace.  The snapshot shows up in stream b but the baselines are showing up from a previous baseline.

I am using Jenkins to run the RTC build definition and an shell script.  The replace baselines works fine in the workspace and then i create a snapshot on the workspace with the same name except .B is added to the end.  I then promote the snapshot to stream b.  The snapshot changes but the baselines dont.

Before script

Stream A

components abc bl 2 def bl 2 ghi bl 2

Stream B

Components abc bl1 def bl 1 ghi bl 1

Snapshot 1

Workspace b

Components abc bl1 def bl 1 ghi bl 1

snapshot 1

After Script

Stream A

components abc bl 2 def bl 2 ghi bl 2

Stream B

Components abc bl1 def bl 1 ghi bl 1

Snapshot 2

Workspace b

Components abc bl2 def bl 2 ghi bl 2

snapshot none it was promoted to stream B

Two points:
-  In current RTC releases, the term "promote" is no longer applied to a snapshot ... instead, you change the "owner" of the snapshot.  And when you change the owner of a snapshot, that snapshot now appears in the list of snapshots owned by that stream, but that has no affect on the configuration of that stream ... it just is a way to organize snapshots.
- When you create a new snapshot, it by default will just re-use an existing baseline, if there is one that matches the current state of that component in the stream/workspace being baselined.
