Subject: [boost] [thread] boost::this_thread::sleep broken?

From the docs I'd expect to be able to write this:
<< "Time Before Sleep: "
boost::this_thread::sleep( boost::posix_time::seconds(10) );
<< "Time After Sleep : "
and have the 'this' thread sleep for approximately 10 seconds. Instead
sleep returns instantaneously:
Time Before Sleep: 2010-Dec-25 01:38:50.949160000
Time After Sleep : 2010-Dec-25 01:38:50.949436000
I've tried this with boost 1.45 and boost 1.43 using gcc 4.4 on debian
x86_64. Am I missing something obvious?
