[Buildbot-devel] Problem upgrading to 0.8.4p1

It appears that the way the buildmasters were started (by launchd on reboot of the Mac host) didn't specify a working directory, so who knows where the code was trying to write. I added a WorkingDirectory entry to those plists, and upon restart, the buildmasters started properly.

Thanks for the help.
