     I have a package which randomly segfaults when running my unit 
tests only on windows i386, but never on x64, or any other OS. I can't 
imagine there are many out there still running i386 systems are there? 
Is it possible to just disable the i386 build on bioconductor so that 
the tests are not run on that architecture?

     I have of course done my best to debug the issue, but all I get is 
an error in some nt dll file, with no useful message or location. I'm I 
Linux guy, I don't know how to do the in-depth debugging that would be 
required to track this bug down on windows. I tried disabling each test 
one by one to see which one caused the crash, but as is typical with 
segfaults, changing the setup can mask the bug even when the bad code is 
still be executed. Each test runs fine in isolation.
