 For testing purposes it is enough to run a bulk build on a single

 If we decide to go this way and always fix this kind of failures,
 this will not be a serious problem. I don't know if other packaging
 systems do something similar but If there is a chance to reduce number
 of segfaults automagically, this will not be a useless waste of resources.
 However, I cannot even estimate number of such failures.
