Subject: [boost] [test-matrx] problem with testing expected compile-time failures.

Hi Everyone,
I need help trying to understand how the testing of desired compile-time
failures work. I know the concept in general, but I observe something
strange in test results for Optional in Master:

I have a test called optional_test_ref_convert_assign_const_int_prevented
It is marked (intentionally) "cf": "only try to compile and expect a
failure".But on tester sun- 12.4_stlport4 the test results are marked as
"comp" which indicates an *unexpected* compile-time failure.

This confuses me:
* I marked the test "expect compile-time failure".
* Test results are marked as "unexpected compile-time failure".

Am I missing something? Not to mention that there is no compiler output
