SxS isolation is not the only reason to have manifest.
At least two unit tests in the boost log library fail to run just because:
1. They do not contain the manifest
2. Their names match the *patch*.exe pattern.
We can rename these tests but it is just a workaround, not a fix. To fix
the problem, we need a manifest.
