Subject: [Boost-build] [Python] Bjam build failer related to MkDir1-quick-fix-for-windows

I get an error related to MkDir1-quick-fix-for-windows when building boost
The command I am using in the dos prompt is:

.\bjam.exe --with-python --debug-configuration --layout=system
link=shared threading=multi variant=debug variant=release

The current working directory is the boost root directory.

The resulting error is:

...found 1140 targets...
...updating 64 targets...
MkDir1-quick-fix-for-windows bin.v2\libs\python\build\msvc-8.0\debug
'C:\Documents' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

    if not exist "bin.v2\libs\python\build\msvc-8.0\debug\\" mkdir

Followed by...

...failed MkDir1-quick-fix-for-windows
...skipped bin.v2\libs\python\build\msvc-8.0\debug\threading-multi for

...skipped <pbin.v2\libs\python\build\msvc-8.0\debug\threading-multi>list.obj
for lack of bin.v2\libs\python\build\msvc-8.0\debug\threading-multi...

And a further number of ...skipped lines one for each object file
Boost.Python is composed of.

I am having difficulty diagnosing this problem as I do not know what
"MkDir1-quick-fix-for-windows" is or where it is being called from in
the build process.

Any help would be much appreciated.
