[Buildbot-devel] Time Out Issue

I have a question regarding the time outs of individual steps.
According to the manual, timeout is defined as:
"if the command fails to produce any output for this many seconds, it
is assumed to be locked up and will be killed."

I have a step that is failing due to time out with the default of 1200
seconds, and when I run the tests manually it completes in 1337.875s.
I run PyUnit with the -v option so that each step prints to the screen
after it completes, and none of the steps take more then 3 minutes.
So according to the above definition, this shouldn't be an issue as
output is being produced in 2-3 minute intervals.

I remember seeing a few emails before on this list regarding timeout
issues so I apologize if this is a dupe, but 10 minutes of googling
didn't produce any answers.  I'd appreciate it if anyone could give me
some insights on this or could point me to a solution.
