The recent test cycle took rather long. That usually indicates a change
to a core component. ("core" includes "Boost.Test", in this case).

The "but" part doesn't contradict the flaky-RAM assumption, actually.

That's unlikely.

I reran the tests for the all toolsets right after I saw the results.

Results should show up with the next table update.

That's a bad idea. Rerunning the tests under that condition would take
several days. Switching back to the head revision of the RC branch would
then take another couple of days.
