The fact that it ruins the entire run might be specific to my setup. But
other runners that are running tests remotely due to cross-compilation may
also have trouble killing hung test processes.

Does the Boost.Thread tests or Boost.Test in general block any signals,
thereby making it harder to stop the processes? I'm running the tests over
ssh but I'm not sure which signals would be sent to the other side when the
client is stopped by Boost.Build. Maybe SIGHUP?
