     121On MacOS X, when the user who runs the buildbot process logs out, the process keeps   
     122running, but it loses the ability to do DNS queries!  This shows up as failures like this: 
     123{{{ 
     124darcs failed:  Not a repository:   
     125http://darcs.haskell.org/ghc 
     126(Failed to download URL http://darcs.haskell.org/ghc/_darcs/inventory: couldn't resolve host name) 
     127}}} 
     128
