[very precise explanation of the different instantiation options]

OK, you obvioualy know the stuff :) Thanks for the explanation.

I think globally changing to -pt is not worth the potential hassle: after all, it's
just one test that's having problems. What I can do is tweak my Jamfile
(you're using v1, right?) so as to use -pt in this particular case, only.
Would you be available to locally test such a Jamfile?
