My mistake. The second call to setfill should have used the original
fill character, whatever that was.

The location was "indirectly" mentioned in a previous post
(on 3/31) to this thread. It's part of: in the files/shared_cyclic_ptr directory.
I've got a number of tests; however, instead of boost/build, they
use make files and perl scripts. I'll post them in another
files directory, probably col_io.
