The 'statuslog' tool doesn't connect to the slaveport.. it connects to a
buildbot.status.client.PBListener port instead. Have a line like this in your


and then use 'buildbot statuslog -m'

I'll update the manual to make this more clear. There are a number of
things-which-listen-on-ports in buildbot that are supposed to be able to
listen on just any port, but which in fact are currently forced to share the
slaveport (i.e. the PBChangeSource, the debugport), so in a way PBListener's
freedom to choose a port is somewhat surprising.
