[Buildbot-devel] Triggerable getting triggered but stays in idle state

First let me explain what i'm trying to do:
I'm trying to build 6 different build factories and when all those are
completed I
want a final build factory with build steps to run.

What I did was to set it up like this:
* Scheduler A gets triggered by a poller (P4)
* Scheduler A has a trigger.Trigger build step that triggers Scheduler B
which is a triggerable.Triggerable.
   the trigger is set up with waitForFinish=True
* Scheduler B contains the 6 build factories
* When the trigger build step is completed in Scheduler A (i.e. Sceduler B
is completed)
  a final build step is run (packaging).

The problem I have is that when A triggers B, B gets triggered and a build
step is triggered BUT
ends up in idle state (and just sits there indefinitely). However, if I set
waitForFinish=False the B's build steps is executed without any problem, but
that makes the last build step in A executing directly instead of waiting
for B's build steps to be completed.

I run on windows with version 0.8.2 of buildbot.

Also, there seems be no feedback from the trigger to see if the build steps
in B failed or succeeded (like in the Dependent scheduler). Not a big
problem, but that would be helpful information of course.

Thank you for your help.
