The basic problem is that process_jam_log assumes
one test case or one library = one source file.
Support for incremental builds makes this a
silent error. We want to ignore the old
output when the target is updated. Thus,
when process_jam_log handles a compile.c++
target, it discards any previous output
for the same lib target. Unfortunately, this
includes output produced when compiling
another source file. The result is that
the last source file processed is the only
one that appears in the report. I looked
into fixing this a while back, but it's
