I run on Darwin, and do get a clean run locally. I am actually not the
maintainer of Boost.MPI, so I am not sure where to start to look for the
bug (there is no output from the failed runs). I will try to get
everything set up on Linux, but it might be easier if someone (Steve?)
could see if there is a crash or otherwise where the failure is coming
from and get a backtrace.
