[Buildbot-devel] Slave disconnected under heavy load?

I've tried moving the master to a different box, since my master was
running on the same machine as the svn server, but the client still
gets disconnected. It's easily reproduceable now (wasn't so easy to
get a failure before).

Here's the steps I use to get a failure:

 - Force a build of plone-2.1
 - While it's in the 'checkout' step, force a build of plone-2.5

At this point I see this in the logs:

2006/06/04 15:09 CDT [IrcStatusBot,client] starting build <Build
plone-2.5>.. pinging
the slave
2006/06/04 15:09 CDT [IrcStatusBot,client] sending ping
2006/06/04 15:09 CDT [-] ping timeout

The time between 'sending ping' and 'ping timeout' is very short,
maybe 5 seconds or so. I believe that is too short of a timeout for
declaring a slave dead, specially if the slave might be under heavy
