Thanks for the fix.

Well, at least now I'm all setup with a debug build ready to test with. If
anything else surfaces I should be able to give a better error report than

My debug build takes about 40 seconds for a particular test case. The same
under the release build from jam_src/build.bat takes about 6 seconds.

A badly fragmented disk can cause these speeds to degrade very badly. And
