Well, Twisted's weak point is its tracebacks, so it's pretty hard to
tell exactly what's wrong from what you've attached.  It looks like
something, somewhere, is calling defer.returnValue(xx) where xx is
itself a Deferred.  But you figured that out in the OP.  I can't see
that happening in any of the related code, though, and it's something
I would expect unit tests to uncover.  I've never seen this error

Is any of the Buildbot or Twisted code modified from upstream?  Can
you verify that to be sure?

If not, please try adding a 'traceback.print_stack()' call to
defer.returnValue, conditioned on its argument being an instance of
Deferred.  That should show where the offending call is.
