#388 closed defect (fixed)

when a status plugin throws an exception in buildStarted the Build does not start, is not killable, and the slave is tied up until the master or slave is restarted

Reported by: bhearsum Owned by: djmitche
Priority: major Milestone: 0.7.10
Version: 0.7.9 Keywords: review


When we upgraded to Buildbot 0.7.9 we had a status plugin break because of the new properties interface. This uncovered the bug described in the summary. I suspect Buildbot should be calling the watchers inside of a try/except block here: Status plugins should probably be responsible for catching their own exceptions, but even if one goes haywire it shouldn't cause such breakage all over the place, IMHO.
