Subject: [Boost-build] Problem defining an explicit alias called tests.

I've run into a rather odd bug and wanted to know if others have seen this.
Using boost build milestone 12, I have a problem with the following simple
explicit sometest ;
alias tests : sometest ;
explicit tests ;
If I type "bjam sometest" is builds sometest. If I type "bjam tests", it
finds one target, but does nothing. If I make tests non-explicit, it will
Is tests special alias defined somewhere???
NOTE: This problem doesn't seem to occur in the latest boost build from CVS.
However, we were hoping to use a "stable" milestone...
