Robert, I'm currently in the process of setting up the boost regression
tests on a HP TestDrive machine. This has been made possible with kind
permission from HP. This will give _much_ better turnaround times for the
regression runs. Once this is done, I intend to change to template
instantiation model of the compiler back to the default, so that static
variables should no longer be a problem. Then we will see, what happens to
the error in the serialization library.
