Yes, don't use "--monitored", instead add the bjam option "-l300" with
"--bjam-options=-l300" to regression.py. The bjam time limit doesn't
have the drawbacks that the monitor exe has, it does have others though :-)
You might want to use more than 5 minutes, for me 10 minutes has worked
well experimentally. At 5 minutes it would sometimes kill long running,
but not indefinite, compiles.
