actually, i might need some help from someone who has access to msvc ...

well, i'm not too sure, how accurate the tests on teeks99-3-win7-64on64
are ... for boost.heap, it reports an issue, that i've already fixed
some time ago ...
the pgi compiler reports a several failures, too, but i'm also quite
sure that it is a problem of that compiler (and being a test at sandia,
maybe also a hpc machine, that will need some special care)

in general, it is hard to tell, if the problems are issues with
boost.atomic or with boost.lockfree ...
