[Buildbot-devel] buildbot on solaris sparc failure

Hi buildbotters, 

I've just installed a buildbot slave (both 0.6.1 and 0.6.2) on solaris 9
running on an old sparc 5, and tried to integrate with a known working master.
When I force a build, I get the following message in the slave's twistd.log.
The waterfall web interface just sits until it times out on the first step.
The '/export/home/buildbot/slave6/slave6' directory does exist, buildbot only
just created it before it tries to delete it.

Any help is appreciated. I've had (relatively) little trouble with buildbot on
linux/bsd/windows, and never seen anything like this before?
