Well, we didn't do anything special to mis-configure it ;), besides
choosing MSVC 6 compatibility mode (during the setup, as opposite to
MSVC 7.0 one). Any ideas what's the right way to fix that?

Yep. This is a shortcoming of the file-based failure report. Collecting
Boost.Test detailed test run results will solve that, and it's on our
to-do list.

Does it? What if the previous run was a total failure - what the next
one is going to show? IMO it can work only if you have a trusted
snapshot of what is considered a "good" CVS state and you update it
"pessimistically" - that is, remove the expected failures that are now
passing and leave everything else intact - automatically, of course. And
that's exactly what we are going to do.
