Unfortunately I don't have a Linux server at hand and can't reproduce the
problems. Currently I'd say that "helpers" can't be started correctly by
the test cases. At least that was the reason why I got similar errors when
I tested everything on Cygwin and Solaris. Here status::exited() returns
false two times (which mean "helpers" didn't exit gracefully), and
status::exit_status() returns 1 instead of 0 five times. The test case
arguments_test can't read any data from "helpers" either. I guess that
this is really one problem which when fixed makes all the errors
disappear. I could have a look but that would require me to give access to
your server, Sebastian? Or does Boost have test servers somewhere which
could be used to track down problems?
