[Buildbot-devel] Increase Timeout value for master

The timeout feature finally works for me.  Now I have added
sys.stdout.flush() in python script to force the stdout to be sent
over to the master.  But it has been inconsistent as when it does 
flush and when it doesn't.

Any suggestions?

The custom timeout works for our config file on a master running 0.7.5.

I'm assuming you've restarted both the master and the slave in a clean  
shell if a reconfig on the master isn't doing the trick as it should be.

When you run the script locally how long does it take? Try running the  
command with the command time before it, so that it computes the  
duration of the task for you.

Our cws_get step doesn't stream the output live, though all other  
scripts do stream it live. I've not yet worked out why.
