The RudbekAssociates-V2 runner is showing 2 sets of results for the
throw_exception_test test:

Where the 'link-static' version is failing and the other isn't.
The exception jamfile used to specify <link>static, but doesnt any more, so
is the 'failure' just because theres a set of old results lying around as
well as the current ones?
