I can't reproduce it. Are you positive that you're not using Boost
from the CVS HEAD? Please be absolutely certain that you're working
with 1.34 RC3. The Jamfile.v2 at the root directory should contain
this line:

  constant BOOST_VERSION : 1.34.0 ;

If it doesn't, you're working with the wrong sources.
