Thanks for pointing that out!

I am not aware of any -u option. I believe this option was silently
ignored for at least a decade. What boost.test added in 1.60 is a
stricter CLA checking

What bugs me there is that the failing test is using the deprecated
test_execution_monitor (which is fine), which is not supposed to be
using the new CLA (and this is not fine).

As a quick workaround, you may remove the "-u" option. However,
something that would help me debugging: is this error new to 1.62?
