It's a Borland problem with last_write_time(). We may have to disable the
function for Borland.

These tests were working as recently as September 1. So I think we should
at least try to fix the problem or problems.

Are you and/or Ron going to look into workarounds?

Where? It already has a "typename" where I would have thought one is

indexing_vector_assign (functor_type::template make_debug_functor<typename
vector<value_type>::reference, value_type> (), cv, e);

I was working on that earlier today, and have emailed John Maddock and
Howard Hinnant with a narrowing of the problem. With luck one or the other
will be able to come up with a workaround.

I don't want to give up quite yet on the tests that passed recently but are
failing now. Regardless of that, it would be nice to have notes on tests we
know are never going to pass.
