I hit the same problem when I started Linux regression tests.
process_jam_log fails due to an std::out_of_range exception
being thown by std::string::substr when these invalid lines
are being processed.

However, this is only a symptom. The cause lies in a problem
at SourceForge some time ago. The SF team had to restore the
Boost CVS tree from backup.

Unfortunately the information CVS keeps for a checked out
copy wasn't accurrate wrt to the state of CVS. cvs update
seems to be unable to create a valid copy of the CVS in
this situation.

The solution is simple: use cvs co to checkout a fresh
copy of the sources.

I suspect that some of the problems recently reported wrt.
the regex library have the same cause.
