boost lockfree's testsuite hasn't changed for a long time. i have no
idea why the tests are failing, so something must have changed in

if the boost.test developers push some changes, it would be highly
appreciated if people could actually check if the change doesn't
introduce any issues for other libraries. i've had a similar issue with
boost.test in one of my boost libraries in the past, where all tests on
the master branch failed, while tests on the develop branch passed. as
the tests of many boost libraries depend on boost.test, i'd suggest to
run the complete tests of *all* boost libraries before pushing a change ...

fwiw, maybe one of the boost.test developers has an understanding,
what's going on there? unfortunately i don't really have a lot of time
to look into this atm ...
thanks a lot,
