Maybe you could rework your "for SAMPLE in..." script to run each sample
in a subprocess then wait for the results?


That way the number of sample is still generated dynamically, the
results can be collected to show if any fail (or if they all succeed),
and the whole build (hopefully) still takes less than 50 minutes?
