#1805: build end_time can become "True"

 In buildbot 0.8.3p1, there appear to be a possible sequence of events in
 which a build's end_time can become the value "True", which is not a legal

 Here is an example taken from a builder page:


 Start   Sat Feb 12 10:15:41 2011
 End     Wed Dec 31 16:00:01 1969
 Elapsed -1297534540 secs

 And if I look at the JSON API output I see:

   "times": [

 At this point, I don't know the exact sequence of events which reproduces
 this issue, but I have seen it multiple times.

 I believe it tends to happen when there is some sort of slave disconnect
