inconsistent git versions in console

Description

On our buildbot's console page — https://tahoe-lafs.org/buildbot-tahoe-lafs/console — it appears to have a bug. The top row is about a git commit "fac1f0d55a7c..." (see attached screenshot), but the cell showing the result of the build for the "FreeStorm? CentOS6-amd64" builder shows this build: https://tahoe-lafs.org/buildbot-tahoe-lafs/builders/FreeStorm%20CentOS6-amd64/builds/0 which describes git commit "4889129f3732219cb9cedb1eb27dec3da3f22db2". That seems inconsistent. Those two git commits should be the same as one another, but are different. Is this a bug in buildbot?

I'm betting there's something odd with the dates, and perhaps merging? Those commits are from early April and early July, and it's August.

Replying to dustin:

Dear Dustin:

Thank you for the quick reply. Do you want me to do anything to try to diagnose this? I don't know where to start, regarding your guess that something about dates and merging may be involved.

The code involved is removed already, and the new console is unlikely to have any of the same bugs.

If you'd like to investigate, that's great, if you can end up with a patch -- the 0.8.x branch is accepting bugfixes.

I'd start by looking at the dates for those commits and corresponding changes in the DB, and then look at the console's logic for associating builds and changes.

Okay, since you think the bug is probably already fixed in the new code, I'm not going to try to investigate this one.
