 All testing tools can fail with exception. BOOST_CHECK_THROW is not that
 different from BOOST_TEST(a==b). It has one good result, one bad result
 and one exception execution path. In later case exception is caught by
 execution monitor and reported as fatal test case error. We do not want to
 replicate rather complicated logic of catching unknown exception at every
 assertion location. If you want to continue with other assertions I
 suggest placing them into a separate test case.
