Description of problem:
Try running following task:
<task name="/distribution/command" role="STANDALONE">
<param name="CMDS_TO_RUN" value="reboot"/>
It can cause EWD in next task.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run a recipe with given task
EWD in next task when we loose start event.
Using plain reboot is not a good idea: next task started to be processed and machine is rebooted at a random moment during task exec which itself is enough to break some tests for example any test with rhts-reboot and $REBOOTCOUNT.
Also, harness did not handle the situation gracefully: network is down and an event is processed in a cycle. When reboot caught it the event was not requeued. Unfortunately it was start event, which is important in the event flow.
Bulk reassignment of issues as Bill has moved to another team.
