Of course. Volodya introduced the removal of temporary files (read: test
executables) some weeks ago. This broke the python tests, so we now
have a facility to specify an exclude list of files to be _not_
removed. You might take a look at tools/python.jam history for the
relevant commits. I've found:
revision 1.47
date: 2006/11/18 08:56:43; author: vladimir_prus; state: Exp; lines:
+4 -1
Don't remove python scripts for Python tests.

I think this (and looking up the relevant mail thread) shoud help.
