As an experiment, I have changed xpressive's regression test to not use
Boost.Test. The results are perplexing. The runtime crash went away on
cw-9_4 but remains on cw-9_5-darwin. I don't know about cw-9_6. It's
possible that it has something to do with the fact that the 9.4 test is
run on Win32 and the 9.5 test on Darwin. Is there is another header
pulling in CW's buggy versions of unistd.h/signal.h/setjmp.h on this

Can someone with CodeWarrior/Mac (any version) sync boost/xpressive and
libs/xpressive and try running xpressive's "test1"? A stack backtrace
would shed some light.
