I'm pretty sure that testing.jam is doing it.

I'm conditioning the running of some serialization tests
on the successful passing of some config tests. I'm sure
its a minor snafu of my own making as it happens when
I make my example/Jamfile.v2 dependent on the
../build/Jamfile.v2 - etc you get the idea.

As an aside you'll all be relieved to know that now that
I've had a chance to spend some time on this, The
serialization test time will be reduced by about 60%.
I've been aware that this was a problem for some
time only recently have all things come together so
that I could really address it.

On the other hand, on my own system I'm running
debug, release, profile (for gcc), shared and static
so that adds up to quite a bit of time on my own
machine. oh well - I suppose it cuts down on my
home heating bill.

The other day I asked about the fact that the testing.jam
removes the executables (via overrideable default)
in order to save space. I asked why the objects weren't
removed as well. Removing them would remove save
a lot of disk space as well. I suppose there's a reason
for treating them different that executables, and its not
a problem for me, but I just thought I would ask.

Thanks for your help.
