Very likely you are using something like shared_ptr or regex that make
themselves thread safe when BOOST_HAS_THREADS is defined, if this is the
case then adding either:
To the build requirements of the test will fix that.
If you don't depend on any boost lib that uses threads, then I would guess
that the culprit would be the std lib used (probably synchronises it's
iostream code somewhere), in which case you're going to need to use the
second option above.
