Oh yeah - sometimes you get more than one issue per test - sort of a free

Several compilers/platforms/combinations have problems with wide character
i/o. These are CW, Comeau, Darwin/GCC. I'm looking at this - I believe it
may be an error in the utf8 codecvt facet. (interestingly, this doesn't
occur with the column marked "CW" hmmmm)

I have a problem with my own cwpro9 installation in that for some programs I
get multiply defined symbols at link time. The resulting exectutable goes
kind of haywire. The column marked "CW" doesn't show this problem and I
hopeful that it will pass almost 100% on the next round of tests. I suspect
there is issue with build/jamfile for cwpro8/9.

Test_list has an issue with slist.hpp and iterators of all things. This
effects all CW versions. Its possible its an slist issue on all platforms
for all I know.

As far as CW is concerned - I'm smelling blood and feel that I'm closing in
on final victory. Anyone who wants to take a look at any of the above
issues is free to do so.
