There's currently a test case for Boost.Integer failing in
MSVC ++ 6.0 with a LNK1179 error:
This bug in MSVC++ 6.0 shows when the compiler emits
different symbol names with a very long common prefix: in this
particular case, the offending symbol names are generated by a
couple of BOOST_CHECK instantiations.
The proposed patch works around the problem and only
affects to the test code, not the library, so I guess it's safe enough.
OK to commit?
