This line in cw.jam

  flags cw LINKFLAGS <main-target-type>LIB/<link>shared : -shared ;

is not working as one might expect for PYTHON_EXTENSION targets.
PYTHON_EXTENSION is derived from SHARED_LIB, which I presume is
derived from LIB, but the -shared option never gets into the
command-line for linking shared objects.

I have checked in a workaround just to clear all the Python library
regressions this was causing, but probably a failing test should be
checked into the BBv2 test suite and the bug should be fixed.
