[Buildbot-devel] contradictory information from buildbot build

One of my ShellCommand buildsteps is returning with "command timed out:
3600 seconds without output running" on my nightly build.  This rightly
fails the build (haltOnFailure is True).

However, when I look at the total elapsed build time, the duration of the
build is 2 mins, 20 seconds.

How is it possible that I am timing out after 3600 seconds if the build
fails 140 seconds after starting?

I am running BuildBot 0.8.8 and Twisted 14.0.0.  It is a Windows 7 Pro
buildbot slave, running virtually.

build step termination:
command timed out: 3600 seconds without output running ['withvcvars.bat',
'amd64', 'python', 'compile_all_vendors.py', '--platform=Windows',
'--arch=x64'], attempting to kill
program finished with exit code 1

Looking at the build afterwards:
Start Mon Jun 30 00:00:00 2014
End Mon Jun 30 00:02:20 2014
Elapsed 2 mins, 20 secs
