[Buildbot-devel] Win32 buildbot slave keepalive timing out

I run a Win32 buildbot slave in the Gnash buildbot farm.  It is a guest
running Win2000 SP4 in a VirtualBox VM on a Core 2 Duo E8400 host
running Ubuntu Gutsy amd64.

I've installed the Win32 binary distribution of Python 2.5.2, and
self-installed zope.interface and Twisted and Buildbot, both 0.7.6 then
CVS HEAD.  MinGW 5.1.3 and MSYS 1.0.1.

It gets through my configure steps and starts the compile steps.  The
slave is configured with a keepalive of 120 seconds.  After a few
minutes into the compile step, the slave reports that it hasn't heard
from the master in over 120 seconds and kills the build and disconnects,

I can verify that the master is fine and network connectivity wasn't
interrupted.  Is this a problem in the Buildbot code, especially on
Win32, or possibly an issue with running it as a VirtualBox guest VM?

Has anyone else out there successfully run a Win32 buildbot slave as a
VirtualBox VM guest?

Any help would be appreciated.
