Hi, George

Unfortunately you do not provide enough information to give you an exact
explanation. An educated guess what could happened: On first machine system
errors are caught on second are not. There could be several reasons for
that. But I may need some answers first:

Does the environment identical?
Do you use the same build of Boost.Test? Which release?
Does the test module produce fatal errors on both machines?
Which environment you are running on? Same or different?.
Are you sure that test are run the same way (meaning
no --catch_system_error=no is defined in one of the cases)?

It's possible that on one of these machines BOOST_TEST_CATCH_SYSTEM_ERROR
environment variable is defined (and set to "no").
