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

Hm. I have a similar setup on one of our buildbots (one build that triggers
~5 others, waits for those to complete, and then continues), and it seems
work work fine. We're currently running 0.8.3 though, so I'm not sure if
it's an issue with 0.8.2 that you're experiencing, or some other factor?
