You probably missed my idea of what went wrong, looking back at the
email it looks like part of the build output. At the beginning of the
build '../bin.v2' is created. This is the same directory as
'/home/daniel/boost/branches/release/bin.v2', which is the one that
causes the problem. I can try to create a minimal demonstration, if
that will help. This might be something that needs to be fixed in
