The RudbekAssociates-V2 runner is showing 2 sets of results for the
--- boost/bin.v2/libs/exception/test/throw_exception_test.test/msvc-8.0/debug/link-static/runtime-link-static --- boost/bin.v2/libs/exception/test/throw_exception_test.test/msvc-8.0/debug/threading-multi --- 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? -- View this message in context: http://www.nabble.com/-1.36.0--RELEASE-BRANCH-OPEN-FOR-BUG-FIXES-tp18078659p18151225.html Sent from the Boost - Dev mailing list archive at Nabble.com.
