I tried to get an overview of the outstanding regression failures. When
looking closer some of the problems shown on:

don't look "real" to me.

Let me give examples:


Last run on 2006-12-20.
I also have an outstanding bug for Boost.Thread on this compiler. I
already contacted the regression runner, and got the response that he
intends to work on the issue "this weekend".
Is this really a compiler that belongs to the release set? Is it
important enough, given the fact that seemingly none noticed that
regressions had stalled for so long?


The reported test is passing without problems on my local setup. Anthony
Williams, the regression runner told me that he is getting strange
results with while invoking test manually works perfectly.
He told me about this behavior in a related case. Could it be that this
test is affected by the same problem, and does not exhibit a real bug?

When visiting the output of this page, one can see:
no errors detected


So what does this mean? Where is the error?
