It shouldn't do so, it would certainly be worrying if it did :-(
Do you still have libs/multiprecision/test/test_arithmetic.cpp in the repo?

OK, so it gets to valgrind_config_check and then bombs out - that's the last
config check that's run, after that bjam should be dumping all of the:
boost-test(RUN) "accumulators/count" : "libs/accumulators/test/count.cpp"
boost-test(RUN) "accumulators/covariance" :
boost-test(RUN) "accumulators/droppable" :
boost-test(RUN) "accumulators/error_of" :
stuff, so that's what's crashing.
If bjam is crashing like that, how do you get any results? Or is the test
matrix just reporting the last successful run which didn't crash?
The only suggestion I have is to not run all the compilers in one big run,
in case bjam is running out of memory and then crashing.
