[Buildbot-devel] lost remote - slave cannot keep connection with master

Okay, figured it out.

There was indeed a duplicate slave.  But it wasn't created in the master.cfg - 
it was a separate process.  Somehow on Sunday, when I bounced the node - 
meaning, running "buildbot stop ~" followed by "buildbot start ~" - the old 
process failed to stop, and remained alive, continually trying to connect to 
the master.

A simple "ps aux |grep buildbot" on the slave identified the offending 
processes.  I killed them manually and restarted all buildbot nodes; problem 

Dustin and Aaron, thanks for pointing me in this direction.
