I have a buildslave running on windows and the timeout is set to 1200s. But after the timeout, the buildbot fails while trying to abort that process and terminates that run, although HaltOnFailure is set to False...

here's the error i get on the windows slave...

command timed out: 1200 seconds without output, killing pid 3060
SIGKILL failed to kill process
using fake rc=-1
program finished with exit code -1

remoteFailed: [Failure instance: Traceback from remote host -- Traceback (most recent call last):
Failure: buildbot.slave.commands.TimeoutError: SIGKILL failed to kill process


anybody encountered this before.
