I have been experiencing similar 'issues' since beta 2 (I believe). I don't update the configuration often, so I hardly notice. This is with a single master.

But e.g. adding a builder to a scheduler and reloading the config. It appears that that this is not picked up. After a restart (which I can do on the platform I'm running), all is well.
However, I once forgot to restart and noticed the next day that after some time the changes were picked up, leading me to believe that buildbot might keep some old state around, although I have not been able to reproduce this in a test environment.
