svn got confused trying to incorporate updates to the email pkg. Slaves

got stuck in their trunk "updating" steps for 7 hours, presumably as a result.
I killed those builds, and tried to start new builds on those slaves. There was no effect apart from their "pending" count rising from 6 to 7. They respond to pings, but won't start another build.
I've seen this happen a few times. It seems the only way to fix this is to restart the master which I did. After the restart, all the pending changes are lost, so I forced a rebuild on both machines.
