[Python-Dev] Snow Leopard buildbot failing again...

I see that parc-snowleopard-1 went down again.  I've done a software
update, rebooted, and installed the latest buildslave, 0.8.4.  I can
ping dinsdale.python.org successfully from the machine.  However, when I
start the buildslave, I get this:

$ buildslave start ~/buildarea/
/Library/Python/2.6/site-packages/Twisted-8.2.0-py2.6-macosx-10.6-universal.egg/twisted/internet/_sslverify.py:5: DeprecationWarning: the md5 module is deprecated; use hashlib instead
  import itertools, md5
Following twistd.log until startup finished..
/Library/Python/2.6/site-packages/buildbot_slave-0.8.4-py2.6.egg/buildslave/scripts/logwatcher.py:67: PotentialZombieWarning: spawnProcess called, but the SIGCHLD handler is not installed. This probably means you have not yet called reactor.run, or called reactor.run(installSignalHandler=0). You will probably never see this process finish, and it may become a zombie process.

2011-06-27 09:45:31-0700 [-] twistd 8.2.0 (/usr/bin/python 2.6.1) starting up.
2011-06-27 09:45:31-0700 [-] reactor class: twisted.internet.selectreactor.SelectReactor.
2011-06-27 09:45:31-0700 [-] Starting BuildSlave -- version: 0.8.4
2011-06-27 09:45:31-0700 [-] recording hostname in twistd.hostname

The buildslave took more than 10 seconds to start, so we were unable to
confirm that it started correctly. Please 'tail twistd.log' and look for a
line that says 'configuration update complete' to verify correct startup.


Now, I thought of updating Twisted, but the Twisted downloads page says,

``Twisted is no longer making a .dmg for OS X because OS X versions 10.5
and greater ship with Twisted installed and the default Python path
configuration makes it impossible for a user to upgrade Twisted without
possibly breaking applications which depend on the system Twisted

Anyone know just what those applications are?  All this machine is doing
is running the Python buildbot.
