Make sure to remove the boost_root directory before you rerun tests. There's a bug with regression.py where it doesn't update the boost_root directory if the --tag has changed. For example, if you run regression tests with --tag=master, then run tests again in the same directory but with --tag=develop, the boost_root directory is unchanged (still points to master). Your error could result from that.
