Running tests faster..

just a quick hint, maybe you don't know this yet:

You can run tests using "make test".
This will run test by test after each other.
Internally this simply calls ctest.

If you call ctest manually, you can use extra command line options, and, it 
supports -jN, as make does.

So, if you have 4 cores, run
ctest -j4
to have it execute 4 tests in parallel and save time this way.

Happy testing :-)
