[Buildbot-devel] Trying to reproduce FileUpload timeout fail (ticket #1854)

Hi Folks, I am taking a look at http://trac.buildbot.net/ticket/1854 and
trying to reproduce the original issue.

I am running on a CentOS 6.1 (64bit) machine (python 2.6).

I have setup a virtualenv (as prescribed at
http://trac.buildbot.net/wiki/RunningBuildbotWithVirtualEnv) and have
installed v0.8.6p1.

I am using a simple builder with a FileUpload step. I have placed a very
large (~ 3 GB) file in the slave working dir. When I initiate the build, I
run "ifdown lo" to simulate losing network connectivity. This essentially
halts the transfer and in 15 minutes the Step terminates with Exception
status. From the web status you can see it has an interrupt logged and the
err.html and err.txt containers read something like "Failure:
twisted.internet.error.ConnectionLost: Connection to the other side was
lost in a non-clean fashion."

Here is what the master.cfg looks like ( http://pastebin.com/tsx18MsZ ).

Furthermore, when I restore the network with "ifup lo" the slave comes back
online and can successfully complete subsequent FileUpload builds.

Can anyone else confirm my these results?
