Hi João,
thanks for committing. The patch should also go to RC_1_34_0, but since I have
a script for merging I've did it myself just now.

One possible reason is that the version of toolset you've specified in
user-config.jam is not equal to the version you request for testing. I.e. if
you have

  using gcc : 4.1 : whatever ;

you need to run

  python test_all.y gcc-4.1

As for intel-9.0 -- looks like that toolset is a bit broken right now, I'll
take a look.
