(This message basically is a repost of a problem I already had reported
on the testing list.)

We have an additional problem that does not become visible in the
reports Doug sends to this list. For gcc 4.0.2, there are a lot of
additional regressions. They look like a compiler problem to me, but I
didn't seriously investigate the problem.

If someone would be able to track the problems down, be to a bug in
Boost or in the compiler, then this would definitely help. (The gcc
4.0.1 toolset is relevant for the release. I think we should not ship
Boost 1.33.1 without being able to say what exactly goes wrong with gcc

The complete list of test results (including the toolsets not considered
  relevant for the release) can be found at [1].

Mainly affected by the new problems are: IOstreams, Iterator and Spirit.
(Jonathan already tried to fix IOstreams, but without luck).
