[Cdash] Test output size

we frequently run into the following issue: a test fails but since it is a 
verbose test, the end of the output gets removed ("The rest of the test output 
was removed since it exceeds the threshold of 307200 characters.")

The interesting bit of the test output is at the end rather than at the 
beginning, so it would be better to cut off the beginning instead. Would that 
be possible to implement? Should I file a feature request?

Another solution is to make the max output threshold configurable, maybe even 
on a per test basis?

Cheers, Tobias
