   Thanks for the feedback, I'll try to reproduce this again now.

   Yup, and the new output shows what triggered the error - something in
Boost Build did not normalize the project module path before storing it.

In one case it is reported as:
   Module: Jamfile</e:/src/devel/boost>
while in the other as:
   Module: Jamfile</E:/src/devel/boost>

   Note the differently capitalized drive letters... :-)

   I'll try to track down the source now and hopefully get back to you

   You're welcome. This work started as a side-project to help clean up
some of our own internal projects but turned out into a rather pleasant
pass-time for my summer vacation... :-) There is just so many great
things implemented in Boost Build, and it is quite easy & rewarding to
take a small task, implement it and see it start living in actual
project builds... :-)
