No, I do not have libs/multiprecision/test/test_arithmetic.cpp. The
directory is the same as svn revision on the web viewer:

I've got a run going on another VM with just vc11 and that isn't giving the
same crash. I also just ran a clean build (instead of --incremental) and it
had the crash again, but I wanted to see if that would update the original
problem with test_arithmetic_cpp, and I think it did. John- Can you verify
this before I move on and try eliminating some of the compilers from the
