It's OK. I absolutly understand your point of view. I don't like wierdness
of MSVC 6 too. Unfortunatelly I have to use it sometimes.

Nevertheless in the patch was coverd one more general fix. The
compiler_status can't deal with absolute paths in test logs files
(test_log.xml). The attached path fixes it.
