I've checked in a fix for MSVC-8 and mingw. Looking at the regression runs, it
appears the Intel compiler was having the same problem. I added "explicit" to
the thread move constructor by mistake; I'm not sure why I didn't spot it
before as I test on mingw.

That's what Jamfile.v2 is supposed to do. I'll install cygwin and check it

I agree. I'm trying hard to import the work I've been doing with MSVC-7.1
across all the supported compilers. Sometimes I make mistakes, and sometimes
I'm caught by surprise.
