It looks like there is now more test output for the continuous
submissions, but not the nightly ones. I suspect the reason is that
when cmake copies CTestCustom.cmake from the source tree to the build
tree that is too late to effect the current build. But it does have an
effect on subsequent builds. So for the 2nd, 3rd, etc. continuous build
this works. That's just my hunch.
However, this conflicts with my experience with our internal "GEVXL"
dashboard. For that project we copy CTestCustom.cmake (actually
CTestCustom.ctest) from the source tree to the build tree in the same
way, and it effects even the nightly builds.

I just added vxl/config/cmake/Modules/CTestCustom.cmake and set up
vxl/CMakeLists.txt to copy it to the build directory, which is where it
needs to be for ctest to use it. I think this will do what Amitha is

Many of the dashboard submissions are truncating the output of the tests
at 1024 characters, probably because they are using CTest as a Dart
