I've originally diagnosed the problem as non-bug, that's true. However, later
I've found out a long dependency chain from is_class_test.cpp to is_class.hpp
via Boost.Test, which means that both is_class_test.cpp and Boost.Test should
be recompiled when you change is_class.hpp is touched. That happens to me,
however, I'm not sure if this happens to you.

IIRC, the symptoms of the original problems were somewhat different for me:
you had no recompiles at all, while I had only some files recompiled. That's
why there's a chance the bug still exists for you.
