I tried recreating the command line our build system uses and I can't replicate the behavior, but it always prints them in my environment. Perhaps the small file affects the behavior and after digesting large amounts of code, it might fail. I even tried including boost/filesystem/operations.hpp. So far, I can't reproduce the problem.

If I ever come up with a self-contained, repeatable demonstration of the problem, I'll pass it along. Since we're off topic, I'll not dwell on this further.
