[Buildbot-devel] interrupting a sudo job...

It seems like buildbot can’t kill a long-running job that was invoked via sudo.
Is there any kind of workaround?  Am I doing something wrong?

The command I’m invoking is something like:

sudo -E wrapper_exe sudo -E -u <username> <real command>

The reason is that wrapper_exe needs sudo permissions to setup the environment.
Then it drops back into the real permissions to invoke the real command.
