Now I see problems in other libraries too.

3 and 4 was ok because there was only 1 module tested
--libraries=geometry. For 2 I tested also core and test.

I tested it locally running (in case someone would like to play with it
b2 status --dump-tests --debug-configuration

and found out that the problem is related with the usage of
'build-project' in Jamfiles.
This is not only seen in Geometry, though it's the library that uses
this instruction most extensively.

E.g. see:

The projects aren't parsed recursively since ~6.06.2014. What's going on?
May it be caused by some invalid Jamfiles added recently for some other
