Thank you very much. Could you do a second experiment, with an
additional option:

    python --verbose darwin
    python --verbose darwin
    python --verbose darwin

These messages are printed to stderr, apparently. Why the testing framework
Boost.Build tests are using does that is a question. Anyway, it seems that
this part is fine, so I'll only need to look at stdout with the extra option.

I believe that quite some improvements in Python support were done in recent
versions. If you still have issues, please file a bug on and
I'll follow up there.

Thanks again,
