"WINNT 5.2 mozilla-central moz2-win32-slave08 dep unit test" tinderbox is red because it needs a process (probably either firefox.exe or xpcshell.exe) killed.  (The process is holding open files that the build process tries, and fails, to remove.)
None of the passwords we have on file for cltbld, buildbot, mozqa, or root/administrator for any of build or qa seem to work for logging into this machine.

responding to page, and taking bug.
1) machine password was temp reset on Thursday so dietrich and sdwilsh could do some debugging on that machine. Once they have finished debugging, we will reset the password to usual passwords on file with IT. Sorry for the snafu, we should have let IT-oncall know of this experiment-in-progress.

2) I couldnt find any extra processes running on this machine, but rebooted it anyway, just in case. 

3) I've now triggered a new unittest run on moz2-win32-slave08, to confirm all is ok. Please reopen this bug if there is still a problem.

This box subequently had a bunch of hg exceptions, which strangely didn't show up as bustage on the tinderbox waterfall, and only on builds there were changes (the periodic scheduler. Since we most likely have an older mercurial on there, it isn't coping with the two heads since the 3.1b1 release branch was added. I've clobbered the box, because that's the very easiest way to start again.
er ... (the periodic scheduler was fine).
Um weird, the clobber didn't fix it. I've verified that
* the problem started immediately after the reboot of moz2-win2-slave08 on 2008-10-11
* the buildbot slave got started the same way as moz2-win32-slave07, which doesn't have this problem
* the problem is that a no-change build can update fine, but any build with a change will report an error to the buildbot waterfall, and not-report to the tinderbox waterfall to leave us with a perma-yellow build box.

We go
  C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe /c d:\mercurial\hg.EXE pull --verbose
and get this stdio
  pulling from
  searching for changes
  adding changesets
  adding manifests
  adding file changes
  added 1 changesets with 5 changes to 5 files
  (run 'hg update' to get a working copy)
If you open the stdio log for this it never finishes loading, which is very odd given it has purple "exception" status.

Then python call-stack for the error is:
Traceback (most recent call last):

This may be more informative:

Any ideas Ben ? Complete guess, deferred connections still hanging around on the master ?

Did a restart and clobber, it's green now.  Should we leave this bug open in case the issue comes up again?
I suggest we wait a few hours before closing.
Fine now.
