It affects an 'important' part of all existing piuparts master/slave
setups, about 1/4. (Are there more instances than piatti, goldwasser,
Dave's and mine?)

And having the rpy jobs only finish at the end is probably also a cause
for the vast memory usage of piuparts-report, at the end it currently
takes nearly 6 GB ...
