As far as the other VC9 failures go:

* Conversion

The lexical_cast_loopback_test test is marked as an expected failure on both
VC7.1/8.0. I guess that VC9 has the same problem.

* Python

I think this is a problem in the tests rather than the lib itself. See:

* TR1

The test_hash\std_test_hash failures are a bug in VC9 - see my post @

For VC7.1:
The Fusion failures are a bit odd - the tests pass on Trunk, and pass on Release
if i run the tests manually.
I don't know what causes the failures.
