A search through the sandbox repo for "aux" reveals directories and
files with "aux_" and "auxiliary", but no "aux" just by itself, so
you're probably not the only one that thinks that.
And judging by a google search and an actual attempt at creating an
"aux" folder on my desktop, it does look like "aux" is indeed a reserved
name on windows...
Would it be possible for the creator of the "statistics" folder to
change the directory of "aux" to, e.g., "aux_" ? I have modified the
subject in the hopes that this will more likely be seen by the
Boost list run by bdawes at acm.org, gregod at cs.rpi.edu, cpdaniel at pacbell.net, john at johnmaddock.co.uk
