Thanks Amber, that's done the trick to make the waterfall useable again.

We also patch all the views to add a builderGrep parameter so you can 
view a subset of builders by regexp, which helps keep the view size 
down. Anyone else have a use for this patch?

Anyone else seen the hang on Mac OS slaves? Happens every time I restart 
the master and seems to be a tight loop - high CPU load.
