The particular red blob you are quoting the log from was produced by the
patchbot on arando, which I am administrating. It could be that trac is
too slow, but I suspect it might have something to do with the network
connection here in NTU... it doesn't always have such great latency, and
it's probably under a little more stress than earlier this year, since
the school year just started here and students are hanging around the
campus and playing starcraft etc. :)
It would be nice if there were some way to prod the patchbot and make it
rerun tests even if the hashes of the patches were still the same.
