Yep, I was about to report this too. I think it gets built/tested in a
couple of variants... very slow for a full test cycle

I've also got a couple of dialog boxes come up even with --monitored on, but
I understand thats a current 'feature'. Means it all waits for me to come
hit enter so the tests are not easily run overnight.

I'm in the middle of a full test now so hopefully this one will finish
before next week....

BTW bjam doesn't bootstrap build with intel-81 for windows either (but the
base msvc toolset builds it fine)
Error messages available later if required
