Budding Yeast Cluster Mutants?

Does anyone know of either mutants or expressed clones in S. cerevisiae 
which result in a "clustering" morphology? Or specifically, what defect 
might be able to cause this phenotype?
In a general sense, I guess any defect in cytokinesis, budding, or maybe 
even mitosis might give a similar phenotype, I am looking for specific 

Clustering = Groups of cells (2 or greater, in chains or groups) where 
the distinction of mother/daughter cell size is lost.

Thanks for your help
