The error is in parse_skipped_msg_aux, trying to parse the message

...skipped <@boost!libs!parameter!test\python-parameter-test.test\gcc\debug> for lack of <CYGWIN_EXE@>python2.4.exe...

The CYGWIN_EXE@ bit is causing confusion on line 232 (CVS HEAD version) ---
there is no path separator in "CYGWIN@", so the insert is failing (with an
out_of_range exception), as the call to dir.find is returning

Changing line 232 to two lines:

        string::size_type path_sep_pos=dir.find( '/', start_pos + 1);
        dir.insert( (path_sep_pos==string::npos)?dir.size():path_sep_pos,"/bin" );

allows it to run to completion --- I have now run collect_and_upload_logs, so
the results should be available soon.

Maybe I should set PYTHON_ROOT (my python installation lives in
c:\local\python24), but it should work without it set.
