Just to chime in with my problems using BOOST_CHECK_CLOSE ...

I always have problems when checking for small numbers or zero. I write
something like BOOST_CHECK_CLOSE(0,x,1e-5) and start wondering why it
fails, then rewrite the test using an epsilon value.

When I know the value is going to be near zero this is ok, but sometimes
tests are written for computed values. A possible solution would be to
have a check that uses the maximum of a relative and an absolute tolerance.
