I'm not sure this would help. Except for one minor change in the
examples which shouldn't affect the testing, I believe that develop and
master are in sync. Since windows tests on the master are quite old it
may be the problem exists on the master but just aren't showing up there

I'm reluctant to starting doing any git jujitzu at this point as I'm
trying to get everything hunky dory before next wednesday when a 1.60
cut off is planned.

I don't know if this is easy/possible with the Boost Testing setup but
when I run here, I can just switch and particular library between
branches and run the tests. That is, you might be able to locally just
switch the serialization library to master and run the tests. Since this
likely will give the same results, you'd actually have to switch the
master to the 1.5 release version.

Rest assured that, as we speak, I'm trying to get out the last nits on
the next version of the serialization library so hopefully the whole
question will be moot soon.

I also believe that there is a pending issue related to visibility on
GCC plaforms but I have to get other stuff fixed before I can look into
this one.

Thanks for spending time on this. Your work is very helpful and
critically important to the success of Boost.
