Yes, and the code to turn off these symbols for intel 8.1 is now already
duplicated in about 4 jamfiles :-(
Nevertheless, the problems are solved in 9.0.
(To be correct: if the symbols grow _very_ large [like e.g. in
boost.graph], the problems are the same, but this is because of a
restriction in MS obj file format; however, intel 9.0 prints a correct
error msg in this case, and it also seems to me that they must have done
something with the size of generated debug symbols as those problems
occur much less frequently then with 8.1!)
