Yes, currently just http://tinyurl.com/yqx58t is failing because of a thread
resource issue: I checked in some changes to that test case so it does fail
anymore if thread creation fails (the rationale being "it's not my fault"),
but I'm seeing sporadic failures on the same test from Boost.Test throwing a
system_error *before* cpp_main is reached. It could be an issue with
whatever the load is on the test machine sometimes tripping that test up.
Likewise there are quite a few Boost.Thread failures
on the same platform: Anthony any progress on these?
Likewise Thread's support for Borland seems to be broken at present :-(
