Summary: grammatical error in error message

Initial Comment:
 BOOST_TEST_MESSAGE( "Test case has less failures then expected" );

Should be BOOST_TEST_MESSAGE("Test case has fewer failures than expected" );

The word "fewer" is needed because the statement is dealing with quantity of distinct objects or concepts. The word "less" would be used for volumes or amount of one distinct object or concept.

The word "then" is for if-then statments not for comparison.

in the file results_collector.ipp revision 1.5.
