Assuming the projects are compiling and building, is there a reason to 
not turn it on despite the test failures? Hudson is invaluable to 
developers who then don't have to run the tests and test-patch 
themselves.  We didn't turn Hudson off when it was working previously 
and there were known failures.  I think one of the reasons we have more 
failing tests now is the higher cost of doing Hudson's work (not a great 
excuse I know).  This is particularly true now because several of the 
failing tests involve tests timing out, making the whole testing regime 
even longer.
