I am attaching the log of a clean session. The way I am producing it is
the following:
- clean repository on develop and build b2
- cd libs/test/test
- ..\..\..\b2 (runs fine)
- ..\..\..\b2 (runs not fine)

So from the logs, it might be the case sensitivity to the drive name (we
can see "merging /d:/Code/Personal/xxx with /D:/Code/Personal/xxx")

Hope this helps,
