I don't believe it have something to do with Boost.Test per say.

Here are all the places where syste error may've come from:

execution_monitor.ipp(532): BOOST_TEST_SYS_ASSERT( ::sigaction( m_sig ,
sigaction_ptr(), &m_new_action ) != -1 );
execution_monitor.ipp(542): BOOST_TEST_SYS_ASSERT( sigemptyset(
&m_new_action.sa_mask ) != -1 );
execution_monitor.ipp(549): BOOST_TEST_SYS_ASSERT( ::sigaction( m_sig,
&m_new_action, &m_old_action ) != -1 );
execution_monitor.ipp(642): BOOST_TEST_SYS_ASSERT( ::sigaltstack( 0,
&sigstk ) != -1 );
execution_monitor.ipp(648): BOOST_TEST_SYS_ASSERT(
::sigaltstack( &sigstk, 0 ) != -1 );
execution_monitor.ipp(667): BOOST_TEST_SYS_ASSERT( ::sigaltstack(
&sigstk, 0 ) != -1 );
execution_monitor.ipp(696): BOOST_TEST_SYS_ASSERT( ::signal( sig,

What you can do is to try catch the exception in your code and report it
yourself. This may at least show some information. I guess I should also
include failed expression text. It's not there yet.
