The scheduling system doesn't allow for the concept of mutually
exclusive requests/runs, meaning only one build of X can be running at a
given time.

Looking at the date of the runs (nearly a month old), I think what
happened is the build log attachment aged out of the backend database,
so the exporter script didn't generate a link to them - even if they
might exist on disk at Apache.  Given the backlog of requests on the
operating system, I suspect the workers may have glitched, so I'll be
taking a look at them.
