Boost Testing :

I have been observing the following error when running the boost regression
tests with the python script.

# Updating from
# Checking modification dates...
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/vol1/boost/", line 837, in ?
     commands[ command ]( **accept_args( args ) )
   File "/vol1/boost/", line 670, in regression
   File "/vol1/boost/", line 584, in update_itself
     if os.stat( sys.argv[0] ).st_mtime > os.stat( source ).st_mtime:
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: ''

After a little searching in the python script, I blame this error on the
function cvs_update() which changes the current directory from the
regression root directory to the boost subdirectory. This change is still
in effect when update_itself() is called.

However I'm unsure on what is the best way to fix this. Perhaps anyone with
a better understanding of the inner workings of the script could take a look.

TIA, Markus
