I was not able to do the test because I tried to do the following :
C:\Temp\boost_latest>svn co HEAD

And got:

svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/boost/trunk'
svn: PROPFIND of '/svn/boost/trunk': could not connect to server

I'm not able to get the svn version ( and taking one file by one through
web browser it's not relevant...) because I'm under
firewall/internet-proxy... I don't know how to instruct svn to access
use proxy internet options.

I may try downloading + testing against the new beta (1.37)... ( that's
more updated than 1.36 but maybe is not as updated as the svn HEAD
Do you have a snapshot of the svn somewhere?
