Awesome! Thanks a lot.

Take a look at the Makefile targets. For a start I'd say you should run:
MVPA_TESTS_QUICK=yes MVPA_TESTS_LOWMEM=yes make unittest-nonlabile
That will run a good chunk of the in a reasonable amount of time.

Some look weired, but better run again with the above command. We have
some tests that arn't supposed to be 100% deterministic. The above
command will exclude those.

If you use the above that won't be an issue.
Let us know if that helps for a start.
