Simply said: Tinderboxes run in a lot of more different setups then Jenkins; that's basically their whole point. There are many more options to build LO then Jenkins could ever test in a sensible amount of time - same for the OS setup.

So I guess you're just unlucky. Those mails contain a list of all patches since the last successful build. If you committed your patch after the build was already broken, you'll also get these mails. Not much to do about it, as the tinderbox just knows the hash of the last successful build. It will continue to build LO with new patches in the configured branch. At some point the build will probably be fixed and you won't get any more of these mails.

These mails also contain the failure information from the build. Can be a compiler, unit test, infrastructure, disc space or many other problems. Normally you should be able to see quickly, if your change might have been the origin of the problem or if you can ignore the mail.
