There has been more than one reason for the failures :(

Some times it was the FileSystemMonitorTestCase - which was also
failing in Continuum about every 3rd or 4th build. I made some changes
to that test and since then out of 43 builds it has only failed once.

The other main cause is FileCleaningTrackerTestCase throwing an
OutOfMemoryError. This was failing in Continuum and I made some
changes which seemed to have reduced the failures but there is still
the odd instance of it. Gump seems to be failing mostly because of
this now (although it is passing some of the time). This test tries to
fill up memory so that PhantomReferences get released - so thats
causing the OutOfMemoryError and is a problem with the test rather
than FileCleaningTracker

I have updated the following JIRA ticket with the history of Continuum
builds and the causes of the failures:

In summary though most failures are FileCleaningTrackerTestCase and
the problem is the test case.
