The manual is right about saying that sighup is reloading the buildbot's
That is a very important feature that everybody is using.
I would guess that there might be a subtletly in your master.cfg, which
prevents the slave list to update.
I would advice to add some debug prints to the master.cfg, and watch the
twisted.log file when your doing your reload.


Has anyone else seen that?  I don't see an exact match in the bug tracker.
