      Description

      Occasionally we have some test which lets Surefire fail hard which Hudson doesn't recognize. I.e. the tests are not executed, but the build result is still success.
      E.g. we had a test which failed with a NoSuchFieldException in the constructor of the test class:

      Running TestSuite
      log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (...).
      log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.
