CC-ing me for messages that get sent to boost-testing doesn't help.
Those messages get put into the INBOX together with spam. We're lucky I
spotted your messages between the junk.

It's the again wrong Python binary that got used to run the test; this
is the log snippet for gcc-3.4.5/extract_test:

/bin/sh: line 6: 5777 Segmentation fault /usr/bin/python2.3

The system's Python got chosen instead of the installation configured in

using gcc : 3.4.5_linux : /usr/local/gcc-3.4.5/bin/g++wrap
--limit-memory=600 --limit-cpu=1800 : <root>/usr/local/gcc-3.4.5
<debug-symbols>off ;
using python : 2.4 : /usr/local/python/2.4/gcc-3.4.4 : : : <toolset>gcc
<toolset-gcc:version>3.4.5_linux ; invokes bjam like:

  bjam toolset1 toolset2

Sorry, not possible. Yes, it would be ideal. I'm still trying to get
hardware that I could dedicate to testing Boost. (This would not only
allow for shared access, it also would solve any bandwidth problems)

I'm on IRC in EFnet/#boost and in freenode/#boost (there's a relay
between those two, anyway). Unfortunately, I can't promise to be there
at any specific time.
