I merged your latest version of your "test" and it failed no where.
I also managed to reproduce the remaining test failure -
test_dll_exported - on my own machine and have traced it to an related
issue which has now been fixed. I've run all tests on clang and several
gcc compilers on my own system. I'm waiting for final results on the
test matrix and appveyor for windows. These were failing but I need to
upload a jamfile tweak.

Sooo - I believe that that there are no pending issues regarding
singletons, visibility and export.
