I turned it off because it was crashing my machine.  :)  The current
machine running functional tests has an nVidia card (and uses nv).
Is there a driver or a subset of tests that might crash less?

I haven't written a parser for the results yet -- at the moment we
return green as long as the command we're running returns 0 as an exit
code, which isn't very clever.  (At least the data's there, though, so
we can do things like plot performance over time and work out when
things broke by hand.)
