Unfortunately, it's the same for me right now.

I wasn't aware of this issue with path.glob. I haven't been working with bbv2
for a while and maybe its obvious, but how does this problem manifest
itself in multi-level projects?

I had tested with multiple Jamfiles, but none were multi-level projects.
If I do get a chance to look at this again, I will test this out. Knowing
exactly what I need to test for will help. (Do you know of a stand alone
regression test for bbv2?)

I agree, it should just work out-of-the-box. I'll up the priority one level,
but I still doubt that it will be done before the boost 1.34 release. Cheers,
