[Buildbot-devel] Network access problems on OS X 10.5 buildslave

I ran into this problem independently, and found the root cause,
documented here:

One alternative solution is to run the buildslave under
StartupItemContext; we have a script containing
   /usr/libexec/StartupItemContext /usr/bin/su - buildslave
/home/buildslave/buildslave/bin/start-buildslave $port
whre start-buildslave is the script that actually starts the slave
(and does a bunch of other stuff -- that's why the launchd script
won't work for us).

Apple definitely heeds its "think different" credo, but at least the
thinking is usually well-documented. :)
