Is it supposed to be possible to run the regression tests using the bjam -j
option? I tried doing an incremental run using -j2 and it resulted in some extra

For example, running the filesystem tests with -j2 results in:

Possibly because operations_test and operations_test_dll are trying to access
the same files at the same time?
