That is wrong. The first run of header creation always works. The second run
will replace the hardlinks to the top-level directories with directories
including hardlinks to _each_ include files, thus touching several thousand

That will always work with a clean tree.

Please find my logs with 11 (eleven) consecutive "b2 headers" runs from
BOOST_ROOT attached. I've used the last debug patch you posted.
Note the different target count on each run. The whole process seems to be
oscillating after a few runs, resulting in the same files/hardlinks deleted and
created again and again...
Please note that using symlinks on Windows works fine. If you have the
necessary rights, of course :-(
