Subject: [Boost-testing] --dump-tests not working reliably?
From: Belcourt, K. Noel (kbelco_at_[hidden])

A number of nightly testers are generating incomplete test results as
evidenced by white boxes on the test result page. One source of these
missing test results is that dump-tests doesn't seem to dump test
output for some of the failed tests. For example: the algorithm/
minmax minmax_element_test fails to produce output for tester Sandia-
clang-trunk-c++11, but the nightly test log (bjam.log) shows that the
minmax_element_test produced output, attached below, but there is no
corresponding test_log.xml file generated.

Our inability to report compilation and/or runtime errors back to
developers is a hinderance to their productivity and is a maintenance
nightmare. Does anyone have any ideas what prevents generation of the
test_log.xml file for some test failures and not others?
