When I reduced the test set to the following test, it still hangs but
says that one test passed (as the 48 I used before did).

        int x = 0;
        x = 1;

When I remove this one test and so have no tests, no hang occurs. It
simply says no errors and terminates normally. I guess I can review the
  macro represented by BOOST_AUTO_UNIT_TEST to see what might be invoked

The make session for both cases was the same (excepting of course the
test output):
