I'm not sure i'd deem four failed builds (3 in sid, one in experimental) 
in the last two years to be "often".

The latest experimental version failed on armel but it also failed on 
armhf (though admittedly in different ways, it seems that the armel one 
got killed on a timeout while the armhf one ran out of disk space).
