Interesting, in this case sublibs file was added 4 years ago. So either
nobody noticed that tests are missing for 4 years or something else
causes the problem. Assuming that it wasn't merged in master recently,
or was it?

AFAIR there was some change in Config(?) made some time ago which also
caused some problems with missing tests, e.g. in Geometry and Math. But
this should be fixed now, it works in develop. May it be somehow related?

When I run:
b2 --dump-tests status/
the tests are listed. And AFAIR the results are sent to the server with
logs and everything.

So I'm guessing that it's something wrong on the server-side or it's a
bug in the Regression, assuming that the scripts/program generating the
HTML results from XMLs sent by the runners is in this module.
Should I create a ticket or do you have some other ideas?
