There are some known issues with latent slaves in the released versions depending on what settings you are using.


Both of these fixes will be in the next release of buildbot, but it might be worth applying them to your development instance and seeing if they help.

Even tough master should manage slave's reconnection while not substantiating , something happens that's not correct. I've attached my custom class. I suppose it should work if the original one does. I can't really figure out what's wrong.
