it is true, by the way, that if you commit 10 changes in rapid succession, then Jenkins may well only make two test runs, not one for each commit. The workflow is simple - a cron job (every few minutes) checks to see if a change has been made, and if so kicks off a test run. It is NOT done with a Subversion trigger (as you might have hoped). 

because I have little space on the box, I have configure Jenkins only to keep two sets of results for some tasks.

I agree that this methodology can theoretically produce problems, but I don't believe it is very likely to actually bite us.
