Subject: [boost] Problem running the official boost regression tests on Vista x86
From: Neil Groves (neil_at_[hidden])

I am having trouble following the instructions for running the regression
tests on the trunk as described here:

Compiler: MSVC9 Express
OS: Vista Ultimate x86
Python: python 2.5

I am attempting to use the command line: python.exe --toolset=msvc

After many hours of execution I get this error:

# Executing SVN command "svn --non-interactive info --xml
boost-trunk\boost" >"C:\Users\neil\source\boost-trunk\boost\svn_info.txt""

= escape(data, entities)
  File "c:\python25\lib\xml\sax\", line 39, in escape data =
data.replace("&", "&amp;")
AttributeError: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'replace'

Has anyone seen this issue before, or know how to fix it?

Thanks in anticipation,

Neil Groves
