During the reconfigs for the Firefox 20.0 release we hit a few ISE 500 errors during the "hg update" step. Because this was after configs were committed, recovery from this was very painful.

Something should be retrying the parts of the buildbot master reconfig that are affected by the network or remote servers. I think this is just the "update" part?

Maybe we could wrap the hg update call in the Makefile with retry.py? Or maybe this is better handled by Fabric?
