I have a similar problem with the output that only shows the library target:
Is it still considered "the test target"? I don't see a note that says that
the output is truncated due to size limits. Is it supposed to be still
4k sounds extremely small, and 16k too, BTW. It was 64k before, IIRC, and I
did see the note about truncated output from time to time. Some compiler
errors may easily produce 100k+ of output and I wouldn't want to lose any of
it since there may be useful information in it.
Is bandwidth really the problem? Can't we just compress the output in scripts
before uploading? The text should be quite well compressible.
