[Buildbot-devel] buildbot doesn't fully reconfigure on SIGHUP?

The manual claims buildbot reloads config files when you send it a SIGHUP,
but I'm not seeing that here.  I mean, sure, it says it's doing it, but
if the config file adds a new buildslave, that won't show up until
you actually stop the buildbot and start it again.
Has anyone else seen that?  I don't see an exact match in the bug tracker.

This showed up for me now because i'm running buildbot under upstart,
which actually has a reload command which sends SIGHUP
(most sysv init scripts seem to guide you into restarting the daemon instead?).

This is with 0.8.7 installed from source tarball.
