This is exactly what I tried as I outlined in the other subthread.

My latest workaround seems to always "work" and also be cleaner than a
cron hack.  I derive from Periodic but instead of always scheduling the
next build immediately, I keep track (via buildSetFinished) of how many
outstanding builds there are and I schedule a bunch of new ones if the
count runs low.

I guess I should try 0.8.* someday, the database backend may have fixed
the reconfig glitches.
