I get a directory

note the absence of test_convert.test.

My reading of process_jam_log.cpp suggests that this is not expected. The
test-name is
determined to be blank. Is this OK and should I just ignore it? or should
something be done about it. I'm not sure what the point would be if the
results are generated without a corresponding test name. I wonder if in
fact this is what the authors of the Jamfile.v2 intended or it is an
oversight that should be addressed.
