[Buildbot-devel] try failing after upgrade from 0.8.1 to 0.8.3p1

It doesn't seem to matter if there's a buildstep using WithProperties in the factory used for the try build; I still see the same error if I remove that buildstep.

Any suggestions?  Is anyone successfully using try in 0.8.3p1?

Subject: [Buildbot-devel] try failing after upgrade from 0.8.1 to 0.8.3p1

I just upgraded from 0.8.1 to 0.8.3p1 (I figured I'd get current after yesterday's difficulties).  In general, things seem to be working.  However, I can't get a try to work.  The master, buildslave, and the client submitting the try have all been upgraded to 0.8.3p1.  When I attempt the try I get this:

2011-02-22 09:38:40-0800 [-] Log opened.

2011-02-22 09:38:46-0800 [-] Main loop terminated.

The traceback doesn't get back to the client, but it does show up in the twistd.log on the master:

The factory used for this try does have buildsteps that use WithProperties.  Is this a problem in 0.8.3p1?  Is there perhaps something that try needs that upgrade-master doesn't take care of in 0.8.3p1?
