"I don't think time contracting for a single customer is a factor"

Your exactly right, Its not anything to do with that, its on a contract by contract basis, whether they contracts overlap, run consecutively or you have a six month break in between each one doesn't matter.

It also has nothing to do with how long you spend at a client * - the contract itself isn't even that important in the determination - its the working practices.. If the client treats you as an employee - dictating hours, time off, what work to do and when (Though in a project based environment even this can be a grey area)

* Though there is a separate 24 month rule which apples to expenses but not tax.
