I can corroborate that--my dedicated spice grinder (as opposed to my 
dedicated mustard grinder) has a clouded lid due to cloves. If you grind 
dry rice in it a couple of times it helps remove a bit of the clove oil so 
that other spices don't end up with an air of cloves about them, but it is 
permanently clouded.

In my defense I didn't know that cloves would do that, otherwise I would 
have ground them in the stone mortar.
