   Hi Noel.

   Could you please check whether revision [79310] works ok at your
test locations?

   I found a bug (my fault :-() in revision [79311] that was causing the
spurious/random/non-reproducible errors I was seeing.

   I could commit a fix directly but I guess it would be safer if you
first confirmed that this was actually the bug that was causing failures
on your end. That way, if it is not, regular testing will not suffer
another stall...

   Btw. the error I caught was in bad error handling for the case when
something created a temporary file, Boost Jam detected it and then the
file got deleted before Boost Jam tried and failed to stat() it.

   Thanks in advance.

   Best regards,
