Turns out you were right!

Somehow, for the last 6 months or so, I have had a buildslave that called itself 
A (according to its buildbot.tac), while the buildmaster referred to it as B. 
This worked fine, for some reason (why?). Then, when I created a new buildslave  
A, and added it to the buildmaster (referring to it as A), things unsurprisingly 
stopped working. I wonder how it was working before, though!

Anyway, my problem is solved - thanks.
