Ah, it could be it was multipart/alternative and my MUA showed me the
plain-text version. Sorry.

That makes it much more clear. Yeah, the behavior I described could cause
that behavior.

The flag is not a part of the Step itself, but rather an argument you pass
when you create the Step inside the BuildFactory. Take a look at
buildbot/process/process_twisted.py in QuickTwistedBuildFactory.__init__,
where it sets up the RunUnitTests step:

        steps.append((RunUnitTests, {'workdir': workdir,
                                     'python': python,
                                     'flunkOnFailure': 1}))

That 'flunkOnFailure' flag is the important part. Each step can have its own
defaults, but I don't think any of them enforce the propagate-failures
behavior on you.

Quite probably the same thing. I will change that to set the 'warnOnWarnings'
